Stand-up paddleboards require on-board life jacket

Print Article

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wants to remind persons using stand-up paddleboard (SUPs) that a life jacket is required to be on board.

All SUPs need to have a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket on board, while children under 12 years of age must wear a life jacket.

In 2008 the U.S. Coast Guard determined that SUPs are considered to be a vessel when used outside a marked swimming area, and that state law applies for safety equipment.
