BEACH SPORTS: Now that summer has reached its peak, we recommend taking advantage of gorgeous Bayside beaches!

Alternatively, you can hit the water for a different kind of workout. Whether you prefer to burn calories with traditional swimming or test your balance on a paddle-board at Kite Republic or The Zu Boardsports, soak up the sun and exercise by the beach.
