SUP Basics and Safety for the Beginner and Intermediate Paddler

Book some time for yourself or a group to learn the basics of Stand Up Paddleboarding, including balance, safety and proper technique. The clinic designed to improve your stand up paddling skills, whether you’ve never paddled, paddled just once or want to improve your skills to get to the next level. More time is spent on improving your technique, responding to your environment, safety, turning, power strokes, and more. If you’ve been paddling for some time on your own, this is a great way to learn skills to practice and take your paddling to new levels.

If you want to work with an experienced paddler to advance your skills on flat water, open ocean or in surf, this is the lesson you need.

We recommend you bring your own board, but we do have a variety of advanced boards to use during the session.
