Throw on your wetsuit, apply your suntan lotion and carpe diem with stand-up paddle board lessons! Hotel Milo Santa Barbara, an oceanfront hotel, announced today that the Independent Collection (IC) hotel will be teaming up with Santa Barbara Fitness Tours for a series of energizing paddle board-related lessons, including stand up paddle (SUP) yoga classes.
In the true spirit of IC hotels, the paddle board offering at Hotel Milo Santa Barbara is a perfect example of the hotel spotlighting the local charm of its location, while bringing together community with something new and exciting for everyone in the area. Known for small gentle waves in the summer, Santa Barbara’s waters are perfect for stand-up paddle boarding, a type of surfing that includes a longer board and smooth experiences for first-time users.
“Health and wellness is so engrained in the Southern California lifestyle and we are delighted to be able to provide a unique and fun way to get involved at our oceanfront hotel,” said Hotel Milo General Manager Shelley Stearns. "Santa Barbara Fitness Tours is the perfect partner to help us create memorable experiences with our hotel guests and the local community. I can’t wait to try it myself!"
After gaining a renaissance in Hawaii in the ‘90s, many have warmed to paddle boarding as a fun and relaxing way to ride the waves without needing the training and balance that comes with surfing. More recently, paddle boarding has been paired with yoga for the ultimate zen experience and was just recently introduced to Santa Barbara.
