By The Bay Waterports LLC is a Cutler Bay-based mobile Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) company founded by fitness enthusiasts and ocean lovers Paul Kinard and Viviana Chung. The company launched just in time for Summer 2014 and offers SUP rentals, lessons, SUP Yoga, and more.
By The Bay Watersports meets groups in various locations throughout Greater Miami such as Cutler Bay, Palmetto Bay, Deering Estate area and Key Biscayne. SUP yoga and beach yoga classes are held weekly at a private freshwater beach location in Cutler Bay.
The company’s main location in Cutler Bay is great for group outings, beginners, and relaxing paddle sessions. The location also has a spectacular view of the sunset.
Kinard and Chung are recent FIU graduates who are passionate about leading an active and healthy lifestyle.
“We both are thrilled to be creating a business around something that is happy, healthy, and promotes fitness and an active lifestyle,” Chung said.
“When Viviana and I first tried Stand Up Paddling, it quickly become one of our favorite hobbies,” Kinard said. “We enjoy sharing our passion for SUP with friends and family, and decided to take our hobby to the next level and create a business while sharing our passion with the South Florida community.”
Stand up paddling is a unique activity; first of all, it’s a lot of fun for family and group outings. It also is very relaxing to just unwind and enjoy gliding along in calm waters. SUP doubles as a fun form of exercise.
“You get out of it whatever you put in to it; basically the harder you paddle the more muscles you engage,” Chung said.
Stand up paddling is a great way to have fun and strengthen your core, increase balance, burn calories, and is basically a zero impact activity. Not to mention the fact that performing squats, push-ups, and various other exercises while atop a floating paddleboard adds a whole new dimension of stability and fun.
Add a whole new dimension to your yoga practice by floating your session with By The Bay Watersports.
“At the moment we are enjoying the fact that we are a family-operated mobile company serving our community,” Kinard said. “We are currently scouting out possibilities for a full time waterfront location in addition to our Cutler Bay location. We enjoy offering our services to families, local churches, small businesses, and organizations.”
