With summer in full swing, now’s the time to move your workout to the water with a fun and core-tastic stand-up paddleboarding session, or SUP, if you please. To help you get your (long, lean) sea legs, we’ve compiled the best ways to get on a board in the city and in the Hamptons. And don’t worry about wiping out and winding up in the water. Cooling off is the best part. —Jamie McKillop
