What is Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)?
It is a very stable surfboard to stand on and use a long paddle in your hand to glide across the water and experience sea life and landscape that normally cannot be accessed.
Do I have to know how to surf?
Not at all, but you must know how to swim. Unless you specify stand up paddleboard surf lesson, you will be in still water.
Is there a minimum or maximum age or size to paddle?
The minimum age is 7 years old. Has long as you are in good health there is no reason why seniors cannot paddle! Also, our boards can handle up to 285 lbs, so come out a paddle for a great workout!
What do I need to bring?
Please wear a swimsuit and sun protection. You may also want to bring something to drink (we will have limited water). We also sell all natural sunscreen with zinc, polarized sunglasses with lanyard, hats, and sun shirts if you would like to purchase them.
What about weather and water conditions?
A light mist in the hot weather is okay for paddling. But no padding in heavy rain or thunderstorms! We will then reschedule. If in doubt, please call. Also, if we deem the water conditions for the day dangerous we reserve the right to reschedule (safety first).
Where do I go for my lesson?
Once you specify the area you are based in and the date and time you prefer, we will email you the location details that are closest to your needs.
Is gratuity included?
No, but it is not required. If you want to let your instructor know what a great job he or she did, it is a way to do that! Or referrals are always welcome too!
Do you do parties, events, youth groups etc?
Yes, we love to! It is a great way to get kids involved in a fun sport and outdoors! Also, it is a wonderful team building experience for work parties.
