The surfing and skating savants at Innerlight spread outdoor sporting enthusiasm through a wide selection of lessons and beachside merchandise. Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) synthesizes the buoyant balance of surfing and self-propulsion of canoeing to form a single aquatic super-sport. Led by an American Red Cross–certified instructor, the one-hour private lesson hones pupils with boardborne basics. Students learn stable-paddling techniques, ocean-safety skills, and how to read the tides for good conditions without reading goggles. SUP riders receive a paddle and a height- and weight-appropriate board for use during the lesson, with training wheels available upon request.

Sandwiched between Alvin's Island and Legendary Marina, Crab Island Watersports opens its doors daily to help visitors explore the surrounding bayous, intercoastal canals, and Choctawhatchee Bay.
