1.5 hours / meet at Sweatt Beach on Lake Pearl in Wrentham
This beginner level course will provide you with the basic equipment knowledge and paddling concepts you need to confidently and efficiently explore this exciting sport. We will also create a foundation for you to take SUPing to the next level and try other challenging applications. The first part of class will focus on appropriate board and paddle selection, outfitting, paddling stance and basic strokes. Next we will move to floating our boards, kneeling on our boards and eventually, standing up and applying those new found balancing techniques. Once you’ve got the feel of it, we will work on our forward stroke, sweep strokes and some ruddering techniques. Falling off and getting back on are some fun ways to relax, cool off and get more comfortable. You will soon discover that you have been having a blast while providing your body with a great new workout. Look cool, have fun, and get some exercise as you learn to SUP with our experienced paddle board instructors at Eastern Mountain Sports!
