Be it Paddle, Surf, Kite, Boating, or SCUBA, they’ve always found comfort in the vastness of the oceans, lakes, and lagoons.

You mount an inland expedition to find the nearest ponds in your backyard, where you can grab a quick fix. This is exactly what our crew did, and so was the birth of our fantastic organization—and namesake of the up-and-coming Wesley Chapel community.
As the premier SUP business in our area, Wesley Chapel Stand-Up Paddle aims to celebrate our town and the diversity of its active people and culture—and seeks to join forces with the rest of our market, in Florida and around the world, to encourage conservation and education about our precious marine habitat.
