Our "SUP: Fundamentals" class is for those who have never been on an Stand Up Paddleboard before. We teach: Balance and basic paddling strokes and skills, how to load and transport a SUP, applicable Coast Guard regulations, along with gear and water knowledge.
You will leave the "SUP: Fundamentals!" class with the necessary knowledge to SUP on calm water (lakes and estuaries), whether for fun or fitness training. You will receive your Paddle Canada "Basic SUP" skills certificate.
Paddleboard and related gear is provided. You will probably get wet on this course, so we also provide wetsuits, booties, etc. free of charge!
This clinic is designed for adults - all participants must be at least 16 year old. Children 12-15 are welcome to participate if a parent is also registered in the clinic.
None. But, a willingness to learn and a fondness for fun won't hurt.
These courses run on Arbour Lake and Heritage Pointe Lake, as noted below. They are 2½ - 3 hours.
