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.
