Wipeout! – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans
Just by living in New Orleans you can naturally develop a lot of useful skills. Dodging potholes and catching Mardi Gras beads improves hand-eye coordination. Peeling crawfish increases dexterity.
One of the skills you will not have learned growing up or living here, is surfing. That’s about to change. Thanks to Becky Hardin’s City Surf Fitness.
City Surf Fitness is a new way to get fit. Only steps away from Uptown restaurants and bars, you hop on a surfboard and ride a simulated wave.
In Mid-City, Jeff Lakey can set you up with a stand up paddleboard. On the Bayou. Or you can take one out on the lake. Jeff moved back to his native New Orleans from San Diego in 2010 and bought stand-up paddleboarding with him, founding NOLA Paddleboards.
