Stand Up Paddle Outfitter and Guide Opens in Connecticut

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) enthusiasts, Mike and Kirsten Cullinane, announced the opening of their new business, The Litchfield County Paddlers. They are certified instructors who received their training from the American Canoe Association in May of this year. They are now offering a variety of classes and lessons for all interests and abilities through the New Hartford town recreation department and in partnership with the Yoga Center of Collinsville.

With something for everyone, training offered by Litchfield County Paddlers includes introductory SUP courses (in group, semi-private and private formats) as well as advanced SUP lessons and the opportunity for guided group excursions. New this summer, specialty classes in paddle fitness are also being offered by the Cullinane duo and SUP Yoga is being offered with their partner, the Yoga Center of Collinsville.

This summer, you can learn to glide on a SUP and safely explore the water from a different perspective with two instructors that have a passion for paddling and teaching.
