New Perk – StandUp Paddleboarding in Pittsburgh

Standup Paddleboarding in Western, PA

I’ve got just 6 days to raise the money for a seat on the inaugural Millennial Trains trip.  What has been most incredible is the response that I have received from the Pittsburgh community.  Thanks to all of our readers who have been sharing and supporting this project.

As you can see I’ve got a ways to go to raise the rest of the $5000 for the trip.

I’ve just added a new perk to the Millennial Trains Project fundraising page – A StandUp Paddleboard tour!  Have you seen some crazy folks driving around Pittsburgh with a surfboard on their car?  Have you been wondering where you can use a surfboard on the three rivers?

Over the past two years, I’ve spent many an afternoon paddling the Allegheny River from a standup paddleboard.  And I’ve made some new paddleboard loving friends – like Ian Smith, owner of SurfSup Adventure.  Ian has generously offered to help support my project by offering a paddleboard tour as one of the perks for supporting my project.

If you contribute $80 or more to the crowd-funding page – you can join SurfSup Adventures for a standup paddleboard lesson and tour.  Once we’ve successfully reached our funding goal – we’ll pick a date/time that works for those who are interested (likely a weedkday evening or weekend morning).  Beginners welcome, no prior paddleboarding experience necessary.
