    Destin, FL riding areas?

    Looking for some tips on riding standups in the Destin area.

    Planning a trip down there first week in March with my college aged son.

    Did a search and found some threads but they were old (newest was from 2013) that provided some basic info.

    Anyone have tips on where to launch / ride? Can you still launch from the parking area by the bridge?

    We're staying in a hotel in Destin near the bridge.

    Thanks for any info you can provide!

    try to seek out Matt Braley for details that area is in his back yard. He can probably point out some interesting backwater/river runs for you.

    its a great area for sure.

    The problem with normal is that it just keeps getting worse...

    I would rather sit than quit...

    I live here across the bay from there but I hardly ever ride over there. Chris Poole is the man over there for that stuff if you know how to get ahold of him. There is also a group called "850 freeriders" that may have some good info posted somewhere.

    Slim and Matt - thanks for the replies.

    Matt - any areas around you that you would recommend? How are the air and water temps in early March?

    You can launch at Destin Marina on Calhoun Ave or at Joes Bayou on Beach Drive.
    Have fun and happy new year.

    Thanks for the info John. Can you still launch from the lot down under the bridge if you have a beach cart?

    I'm not sure on that one. Don't ever see anyone doing it. Pretty easy to launch from Destin Marina, which is only a couple of mins away. You'll also need a permit (new last year) from Eglin AFB to use the parking/beach area there. You can get one online I believe.
    Cheers
