Sitting while you paddle is so last summer. Starting Memorial Day weekend, you can rent a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) at the Miami Whitewater, Winton Woods, and Sharon Woods boathouses. The SUPs—which are basically wider surf boards that you stand upright on while navigating with a paddle—rent by the hour ($9.37 plus tax). Don’t worry, it’s actually easier than it sounds, not to mention a great core workout. They may not offer the same quiet romanticism as paddle boats, but they will help you tone that rockin’ six-pack.
