New to SUP? Come Learn With Us!
WE ARE NH’S MOST TRUSTED DESTINATION FOR PADDLE BOARD LESSONS.
We’ve taught thousands of people of all ages, shapes and sizes how to paddle board and we’re confident that we can help you get paddling, too! Our goal for every SUP lesson is to provide you with the appropriate gear and instruction to ensure you have a successful experience. Our individual and group lessons are designed to introduce you to or enhance your stand-up paddle boarding skills.
Lessons begin with on-land instruction to get familiar with your equipment and review paddle boarding fundamentals, followed by 45 minutes of on-water coaching and practice to improve your technique. Qualified and CPR certified instructors will help you master balance, paddling, turning, water safety, equipment handling and SUP etiquette in calm waterways.
Lesson times and availability are dependent on the tide schedule. Lessons are for individuals and groups of up to four paddlers. For larger groups or custom paddle boarding events, contact us for rates and availability!
