It's not everyday that Madison, Wisconsin has a Stand Up Paddle pro navigating it's waters. Especially when it is January and the air temperature is only 26. The chilly conditions did not stop Paddleboard Specialists owner Gary Stone and Connor Baxter from venturing out on Madison's Yahara River. Connor is a longtime family friend of Gary's and was in town for the Holidays. Gary could not pass up the opportunity to paddle with Connor, so they made the best of it. The Paddleboard Specialists crew has been paddling comfortably all winter. Check out the clip and watch Connor reluctantly test the waters when the little ice shelf he was standing on breaks. And speaking of breaks, we love when Connor takes a break to chip off a little ice for a snack.
A big thanks to Connor for being such a good sport and for taking the time to shoot some video for the blog. Hopefully we will get Connor back here for some more paddling when the weather is a bit warmer.
Stay tuned to the blog for more of our winter adventures. If you would like to learn more about Paddleboard Specialists, give us a call at 1-877-473-1199 or visit paddleboardspecialists.com
