World's First Clothing-Optional Stand Up Paddleboard Race
Saturday, September 6th

Cypress Cove will host the world’s first clothing-optional stand-up paddleboard race on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 9:15 a.m.

Athletes will compete in “The Nude SUP Challenge,” a four-loop, flatwater race around Cypress Cove’s 50-acre Brown Lake for a total of roughly four miles. Like other SUP events, three-deep awards will be given to male and female finishers in three categories: stockboards, 12’6” raceboards and 14-foot boards. Athletes need not compete in the nude but the first overall male and female finishers will be crowned the World Champions of Nude SUP.

Nude PaddleboardThough the event is not affiliated with Surf Expo, the Nude SUP Challenge will coincide with the popular surf/SUP convention, which is expected to draw more than 30,000 people to the Orange County (Fla.) Convention Center from Sept. 4-6. The Cypress Cove Resort is a 30-minute drive from the convention center.

Stand-up paddleboarding is one of America’s fastest-growing sports, attracting outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for an enjoyable workout that combines the best of cardio and core conditioning.

The Nude SUP Challenge is produced by Enterprise Media LLC, which since 2010 has produced clothing-optional 5K races at Central Florida nudist resorts, including the fourth-annual Streak the Cove 5K, which will be held at Cypress Cove on Sept. 28.

Registration for The Nude SUP Challenge is available at Further information is available at

I had a wonderful time with my kids in North Carolina. I came back to our new RFID locks on all of the hotel doors. That was exciting!

We've put one of the RFID door locks on the gym as well. This will allow us to better control who has access. I know some of the paid gym members feel a little burned when they see someone in there who hasn't paid. It will also make the equipment more available for those members. We'll be contacting all of our existing gym members in the coming weeks to issue keys. In the meantime, the other door is unlocked.

We'll be closing Building 5 right after Parrothead to begin that renovation project. Our fingers are very tightly crossed that all of the furniture will arrive on time this time!


While I was gone, I also missed our Open House & Professional Body Painting Contest. Luckily, I've only heard good things! Here are a few photos from the contest:

We've got our "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirts back in stock!

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
Back to our traveling residents, now at Lassen Volcanic National Park

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
