Lessons

Fun and easy for the whole family! No experience necessary! Come experience why stand-up paddle boarding is one of the fastest growing paddlesports around. Even if you’re a beginner, your professional instructor will have you standing up and cruising around the lake in no time. All that is required is an open mind and a desire to learn!

We recommend a minimum of 2 hours of instruction to pick up the basics of SUP. Longer lessons are available, multiple sessions are highly encouraged, and discounts do apply to both. The minimum age for a child paddler is 12 years old. Younger children are always encouraged to come along, but must ride a board with parent or the guide.
