Stand Up Paddle Lessons
$50 - $125/2 hours
SUP Level 1- Beginner; Protected Flat Water (1 to 8 students)
The Level 1 lesson is offered as a private lesson or a group lesson for up to 8 paddlers. Choose this lesson if this will be your first time on a stand up paddleboard, or if you have paddled some but have never had a lesson previously. You will learn everything you need to know to get started enjoying the water on a paddleboard. Safety, fun, and beginner skills are the focus of this lesson. We schedule this lesson when winds are at most 5 mph and when tidal currents are not running too fast.
SUP Level 2- Paddle Stroke (1 student)
The Level 2 Paddle Stroke lesson is for you if you have been paddling for any length of time and may be unsure of your technique. Paddling with proper form through all phases of the stroke greatly improves paddling efficiency and may even prevent injury to shoulders and spine. We begin by recording a few minutes of video as you paddle back and forth. After reviewing the video for paddle stroke errors, we hit the water for remedial drills. We follow up with an "after" video so you can compare the difference in your stroke. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if you don't finish paddling better, stronger and faster, you get your money back! This lesson is scheduled when there is zero wind to at most 5 mph.
SUP Level 2- Exposed Water (1 to 3 students)
The Level 2 Exposed Water lesson takes what you learned in a Level 1 Flatwater lesson and applies it to conditions that include wind chop, swell, currents, stronger winds, and shorebreak. If you will be launching and landing a SUP on an open beach and entering open water, this is for you. While we don't cover surfing a SUP in this lesson, the skills you learn here are necessary to advance to SUP surfing lessons. Because students in this lesson have already gained some paddling experience, we schedule this lesson when the winds are up to 12 miles per hour and there may be stronger currents.
