Try a Stand Up Paddleboard at the Lagoon

A stand up paddleboarder on Lake Champlain, Burlington VT
I recently visited Burlington, VT where stand up paddleboarding is all the rage.  I was wondering how hard it would be to find a spot to try it here in Milwaukee, and easily found a rental place at Veteran's Park on the lagoon.  Maybe you remember it as the place you used to rent paddle boats?  Well, now it's a franchise called Wheel Fun Rentals.  You can still find paddle boats, but now you have the access to kayaks, and stand up paddle boards too.  You can get a "daily deal" via jsonline and save 50% if you buy a voucher before Aug 17, 2013.  Pay $10 and get $20 value.

Price list and products offered for rental
They are open 10 am-sunset during the week and 9 am-sunset on the weekend.

Milwaukee Power Yoga is currently running a 5 week class that involves a combination of yoga and stand up paddle boards, similar to what you may have seen offered in Pewaukee by Koha Yoga.  These classes are offered Thursdays 6:30-7:45 and are $20 per class.  You can click on the Milwaukee Power Yoga link for more information or to preregister.
