SUP Clinic and Free SUP Experience in New Jersey

NEXT Swimwear Has Teamed Up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for the 2nd Annual NEXT NATIONAL SUP DAY.

SUP Clinic

NEXT Swimwear has announced the 2nd Annual NEXT National SUP Day taking place nationwide on June 15, 2013.  Next has teamed up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) to celebrate the stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and to raise awareness of the benefits the sport provides young people who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis.

Our good friends at Coastline Adventures Surf & SUP will host the SUP clinic and  free SUP experience event taking place from 9:00am-2:00pm at Winward Beach Park. The event features SUP clinics hosted by professional stand up paddle boarders as well as the opportunity to try-out SUP. Through the event, children with Cystic Fibrosis will have a personal free SUP session.

Cystic fibrosis affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). Research has  proven that kids with CF who surf and SUP have healthier lungs than those who don’t. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation funded research for a hypertonic saline treatment that mimics a “surf session.” Today more than 70,000 people who suffer from CF around the world experience the healing effects of the ocean during treatments in their own homes.

“Stand up paddling and surfing provide positive opportunities for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
