Paddle Boards (SUP)
What is SUP?
SUP (Stand Up Paddling) is the fastest growing water sport in the world! It’s the latest craze to sweep the waterways creating a buzz and earning a reputation as a walk-on-water phenomenon. A uniquely soulful experience, SUP is great for youth, athletes, and grandparents alike!
SUP is a hybrid sport that utilizes lower, mid, and upper body muscle groups providing one of the best core work-outs available. The low-impact core training is one of the fundamental reasons why SUP has gained so much momentum and popularity throughout the world!
- Stand up paddling is enjoyed with the paddler standing on a very stable paddle board and using a long lightweight paddle to propel and steer. It is an experience completely different from any other type of paddle sport.
- The ease of paddling an SUP will surprise you, the stability will shock you, and the fun-factor will refresh you. But it is the view from up high that will convert you. Being 5 to 6 feet above the water minimizes refraction and surface reflection and allows you to see all kinds of fish, turtles, and sealife as you paddle over. It’s a completely different experience with a clear view into the water you are paddling. Be forewarned, it is extremely addictive.
- And it’s not just for the conditioned athletes and young, tanned surfer types. People of all ages, shapes and sizes are enjoying this low-impact recreation. If a Stand Up Paddle Board sounds like too much of a challenge, rest assured it is not. The photos speak as to how stable our SUPs are. And we were amazed at how easy they are to paddle. The long paddle gives you more reach, a longer stroke, and allows for almost effortless control.
Private stand-up paddle board lessons are available for students of all ages!
Lessons cover: safety skills, equipment knowledge, core technique, & SUP etiquette. Lessons for larger groups and families are also available.
Lessons are conducted in calm, flat waters. It is important for new paddlers to begin in relatively tranquil conditions. These conditions allow you to focus on the important elements of board, paddle, and stroke. As a beginner, you can never get enough flat water paddle time. The more you paddle the better you get!
