    One woman hopes to make a splash in Shelby County with a new paddleboarding business.

    A few weeks ago, Shelby County resident Jennifer Oates opened Kentucky Paddleboarding – a business renting paddleboards to people who are interested in getting out on the water.

    “[A paddleboard is] basically the shape of a surfboard – it’s a little wider and longer,” Oates said. “Surfing is where it originated from. A guy in Hawaii basically said, ‘How about adding a paddle to it?’ and then it became paddleboarding.”
