Sunday Water Sporting Off The Hook

The sun was out on Sunday and so were water sports enthusiasts.

It was day for windsurfing, paddle boarding and some local summer sunning and lounging on the bay side of Sandy Hook.

Kayak rentals and windsurfing lessons were in full swing.

Take a look to get a glimpse into the day and mood. Enjoy!

Yes, the chilliest cold snap of the year has had people thinking more of warmer times — and counting the days.

Well, our Retro Pic of the Day is a toasty bounce back to the summer of 2013 and a fundraiser day that had participants languishing in the Navesink River waters ’til the end.

The event was dubbed Paddle with a Purpose. It was a fundraiser that had people paddle boarding and kayaking in part for Sea Bright Rising.

The participants paddled their way roughly five miles up and down the Navesink, ending at Victory Park in Rumson.

Time for that warm-up!

Do you kayak, paddle or just wade in the river water?  What’s your favorite spot?
