Paddleboarding for Transformational Results

Linda Bartek is a standup paddleboarding instructor and owner of SUPrites, which is not only an acronym for the sport, but also a contraction of the phrase, “What’s up?” A former emergency room nurse, she regained her passion and life’s purpose tending to the terminally ill.

A terrific fitness regimen, she found that standup paddleboarding could lead to mentally and spiritually transforming changes. Her services include tours and calm paddles on the Salt River, Canyon and Saguaro Lakes of Arizona.

Other options are a three-hour Salt River Eco Run, for experienced paddlers; biodegradable balloon releases for special occasions; aqua-weddings; pet memorials; and Full Moon Rites of Passage.
