Paddleboard racing » It’s like the Indianapolis 500, except it’s on water, there are no motors, and they don’t go 500 miles. And it’s in Utah. But it’s still a lot of fun to watch paddlesboards race across Jordanelle Reservoir in the H2O Overdrive Summer Series. There’s categories for different ages and experience groups. Go to www.h2ooverdrivesummerseries.com/summer_series for more information.
