Introduction to Stand-Up-Paddleboarding

Stand-up Paddleboarding is just rocketing in popularity. Many describe the feeling as walking on water. The best way to describe it is to imagine using a long canoe paddle to paddle a surf-board. Of course, the best way to really understand is to take a class. You can creep along the side of a pond with a great look at the fish below or use it as a super core workout (quit the gym and buy a board!). SUP is just super fun! Intro to SUP is the perfect way to give the sport a try. We'll cover all the essential skills you'll need to get started for enjoying the sport on calm water.

Cost : $50

Quick Start Your Kayak

Paddling a kayak is great fun- from a leisurely paddle to wind down to a great core workout. Quick Start is a brief, three hour introduction to paddling a kayak properly. Students are presented with basic information on terminology, dressing, paddle safety, potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddle skill set is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water.
