It will seem like more people will be "walking on water" this summer as stand up paddle boarding is getting more and more popular. 

 

Molly Cogswell-Kelly with the Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation (MBSEF) says the sport is attractive to a wide variety of people, because it's easy to learn. 

 

"You know, I think that some people are intimidated by kayaking. Or they feel that the only way they can really enjoy the river is via boat that this so easy. You just get on the board and you paddle around and it's a great core workout."

 

MBSEF and Sun Country Tours is offering a series of stand up paddle board classes over the summer that will include lifesaving and water safety skills.  Sun Country Tours will supply all of the equipment - you just need to sign up through MBSEF (541-388-0002).
