How hard is it to balance on the board?
Easier than you think. Most students like to start on their knees and then once they feel comfortable rise to their feet. The Glide paddle boards we use in our classes are 35" wide which make them very stable.
What should I bring to class?
A towel and extra pair of clothes just in case you feel like getting wet. You will more than likely get your feet wet so water socks or flip flops to protect your feet. Avoid wearing baggy/over sized clothing that will interfere with mobility and avoid cotton which does not dry quickly. We also recommend wearing a hat, sun screen, and sun glasses. Don't forget your water bottle to stay hydrated. We provide the board, paddle, ankle leash, PFD (life jacket), and whistle.
Do I have to wear a life jacket?
As long as you know how to swim you do not need to wear a life jacket but it is required to be on the board.
Can I bring my phone?
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your phone and we do have dry pouches you can borrow for phone and keys.
Where are you located?
Can I bring my own board?
Yes, the Intro to Paddleboarding lesson, and the SUP Yoga class are 1/2 price if you bring your own board. Use the coupon code "byob" when registering online. You might also be interested in our community paddle. Read more on this under our "Tour" page.
Is there an age limit?
We have had many seniors join us so there is no such thing as too old! Ages 12 to 18 are welcome to join our regular classes but will be required to have a parent/guardian signature on our waiver of liability form. Parents/guardians are welcome to rent paddleboards for their children Ages 6+ but we have found that controlling the long paddle proves quite difficult for ages 6 through 9. Please click on tab below (sign waiver), and fill out before arriving to class.
Is there a weight limit?
Our Glide Paddleboards can hold up to 275 pounds.
