Paddleboarding is a hot trend on the lakes. And it’s great exercise. “I’m encouraging everyone to get out there,” said Alex Linnell of UAO Paddleboarding. “I’ve had tons of different people, from little kids to the elderly — my grandmother actually came out.”
A 21-year-old Mendota Heights man is planning on paddle boarding the entire Mississippi River, which will be a world record. He’s doing it for a good cause, too.
