I am an American who recently moved to Turkey and started a paddle boarding company. I am based in Bodrum, Turkey and currently sell and rent out paddle boards. Bodrum is located on the Southwest corner of Turkey between the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. It is a great location to start whether you want to paddle the Aegean or the Mediterranean. I truly believe Turkey is a most perfect place for paddle boarding and I would be happy to assist you in any way possible. I am hoping to develop a race between Turkey and Greece probably dating in 2013. You can reach me here or by email at email@example.com.
