Introduction to Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Learn the basics of getting on and off your board and proper paddling and maneuvering techniques in this one-hour introductory lesson. We start with a dry-land introduction
Stand-Up Paddleboarding is an exciting and fast-growing sport that combines surfing with paddling.
that will include a SUP warm-up, proper water safety, and SUP etiquette.
Then we'll get on the water and learn how to safely get on and off the board. You'll go from your belly to your feet and cover proper standing technique, paddling technique, turning the board, maneuvering over and through small waves, and more depending on the level of the group.
Our Intro to SUP is perfect for those who have never paddled, SUPped, or surfed before, though anyone who has never received formal SUP instruction will benefit.
We offer our Intro to SUP at our Newton/Auburndale location on Comm. Ave, and our Boston location in Allston/Brighton.
