STARBUCK, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota State Parks are jumping on the latest trend in water sports with plans to rent stand-up paddleboards at eight parks.

Department of Natural Resources officials say it's a good way to promote a new physical activity. Paddleboarding involves standing on a board similar to a surfboard and propelling oneself around with a long paddle.

The boards will be available at Blue Mounds, Glacial Lakes, Glendalough, Lake Shetek, McCarthy Beach, Myre-Big Island, Sakatah Lake and William O'Brien parks.

Parks and Trails spokeswoman Amy Barrett says paddleboarding is cool and the DNR wants to attract the next generation of state park visitors.
