Walk on water - on paddleboards

Paddlers enjoying the Chitose River on paddle boards

Fans of standup paddleboarding (SUP), in which participants paddle standing up, enjoy a water stroll around Lake Shikotsu in Chitose City.
On a beautiful day of July 18, many SUP enthusiasts gathered at Lake Shikotsu and the Chitose River flowing from the lake. Paddlers went with the flow while keeping their balance.
“It’s fun because your eye level is higher up, and it feels like you are floating when you stand on the board,” said a couple from Sapporo who started SUP last year.
