Perfect Paddles is your destination for Resources and Support for the SUP community - local focus, and global reach.

Life is Better On The Water!

From the famous/infamous Summers at the Jersey shore to Statue of Liberty and Fall foliage paddle tours in Connecticut, the gold coast of Long Island (think, Great Gatsby), the “sound”,
and the Hamptons the New York Metropolitan tri-state area has plenty of flat-water, white-water, and surf zones to explore including hundreds of lakes, ponds, rivers, canals, tidal zones, and coastal miles.

The largest metropolitan area in the world, and one of the most populated, this region contains both the northernmost tip of the North American subtropical zone, and Humid Continental climate.

Summers can be hot and humid, and bring thunderstorms, and the winter can bring plenty of snow (like anywhere there are winter paddlers in this region, just dress appropriately), while the Atlantic can temper the coastal conditions. In Spring and Fall the water temps, and river flow can vary dramatically. Like everywhere experience and a little guidance go a long way towards enjoying the 8 months of the primary paddle season (April -November), and definitely are required for the colder months in between.
Looking to find new places to paddle, connect with other paddlers, get inspired for your next paddle adventure, and live the ultimate water-based life onboard and beyond? We're here to help you get the most out of your next stand up paddle board experience, with everything from launch guides, featured trips and workout tips, to discounts on trips and accessories.
