Stand Up Paddle Surfing Life Vests

In October 2007, the United States Coast Guard officially classified stand up paddle boards as a vessel. The significance of this ruling is that you are required by law to wear a stand up paddle surfing life vest if you are paddling outside of a swimming, surfing, or bathing area. The enforcement of this law is at the discretion of the Coast Guard. Some area give out tickets, some don’t, and local factors could change the local enforcement guidelines at any time.
