Level 1 Comprehensive Intro to SUP

Sea Lion

This lesson perfect for first timers or those with just a few paddle hours under their belt and want to learn all there is to SUP to get a great on water workout or paddle in the ocean one day . . .maybe even in exotic locations around the world!

The Intro to SUP is the first in the Paddle Method Core series: 1,2,3. This where every paddler who wants to get the most out of their water time should start.

Starting in the sand, learn the basics of the stroke using your paddle to make your own sand art! The rest of the hour is spent on the water perfecting all the basics of board control in a calm flat water lagoon. This is like your first driving class but on a SUP!

Paddle Method is a learning methodology that builds muscle memory stroke by stroke so you can build confidence comfortably and at your own speed. There is plenty more to learn in level 2 and 3 but you can get to those when you’re ready.

Once you learn about the glide, and get the mechanics of the power paddle stroke, you’ll learn to time your stroke to the energy on the water around you. Sounds cool, right? Well, it is! Your first lesson gets your feet on the board and moving onto the learning curve that is Core Lessons 2 and 3.

You will:

  • Gear up! Learn about your performance paddle equipment
  • Learn water safety and how to read conditions on the water
  • 360 degree board control: forward stroke, stopping and reverse, bracing, and basic turns.
  • Learn balance and how to create and control your momentum
  • Build your confidence and practice what you’ve learned in a flat water setting
  • Monday – Friday N/A
    Saturday & Sunday 8:30am, 12:30pm
