Paddling Film Festival & Try Paddleboarding – This Saturday

One of THE BEST ways to see Pittsburgh is from the rivers.  If you have been a regular reader of IheartPGH, you know how much we love kayaking around town with Kayak Pittsburgh.  Last summer, thanks to the REI and my sister who spent a summer in Hawaii, I spent most of the time on a standup paddleboard. (If you saw some crazy lady driving down Penn ave with a large surfboard on the car – that was probably me). Whether your sitting in a kayak or standing on a board – Western PA offers lots of great places to paddle.

SurfSUP Adventures, a paddle board tour company located here Western PA, is bringing the Reel Paddling Film Festival to town this Saturday.
