Are paddleboards boats and is yoga allowed at the marinas? East Hampton ponders

Ah, life’s big questions. The East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals is taking up a new case filed by paddleboard guru Gina Bradley. Her storefront, Paddle Diva, was denied a permit to convert a former office into a retail store. In her appeal last month to the board, her attorney argued that paddleboards are essentially no different than boats (legally, that is) and deserve a place at the Shagwong Marina, the East Hampton Star reported. As for the yoga lessons that Bradley also offers at her store, she promised to take them off the calendar. “I don’t want to become the behemoth paddleboard business of the East,” she said. But some of her neighbors are skeptical. Rose Grau, who owns two parcels adjacent to the marina, said Bradley’s storefront violates permitted uses at the marina. “She has erected a 20-foot flagpole and offers soft drinks,” Grau said. The board has board 62 days to consult its favorite philosophers and reach a decision on the appeal. [EHS] — Cathaleen Chen
