The beauty of the sport is that all that is required is a body of water; no wave needed. A river, harbor, lake, or any body of water will do when you are not by the ocean. One of the advantages of Stand-up paddle surfing is the angle of visibility because of the standing height over the water. One can see both deeper into the water and further across the surface of the water; whether it is the marine life in the water or the incoming swells of the ocean rolling in on the horizon.  You will be blown away by how much fun you will have while getting a great workout.

All equipment is provided including paddleboard, paddle, leash, and instructor. You provide your swimsuit, sunblock, and a positive attitude.  Lessons are available year-round, rain or shine We welcome corporate groups, school organizations, civic groups, etc. There are no group paddleboard lessons.

  • Private Lessons (1 on 1 with you and your surf instructor) – required for kids 4-6 years old
