What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Learn to use your whole body, torso rotation, and paddle leverage to get the most out of every stroke. After this class you will know a lot more about your Core and how you want to proceed.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding is sweeping the world stroke by stroke, wave by wave. SUP Basics will get you on your way to knowing exactly what all the buzz is about.

Like their other paddling classes, they will start you on the comfort of dry land to introduce you to the evolution from super stable knee paddling to walking on water standing free and proud on an SUP.

SUP basics will prevent you from becoming a "paddle statue with flapping arms" and lead you towards a the free flowing power of poetry in motion.

What should you bring:
If you have a light wetsuit or other water gear, it is great to bring your own to use. If not, you can wear synthetic, quick-drying clothes and long sleeves plus a wind-breaking jacket for cooler times. Don’t forget to bring footwear that can get wet. For most of our recreational activities, many clients prefer to go barefooted when out on the water. But it is good to have something to protect your feet in the boathouse and on the docks.

About Hudson River: 
Currently, the lower Hudson River has been called “the cleanest urban waterway in the country.” DEP initiatives, starting back in the 1970′s, have continued to improve and monitor the water quality in and around New York City.

Note: 12-17 years old must be accompanied by adult guardian. You must be able to get up from seated position on the floor without assistance. Should be able to exit a swimming pool without having to use a ladder. Cannot take people above 250 lbs or people with over a 38 inch inseam (usually means 6'6" and above).

Refund & Cancellation Policy

There is a $2.00 non-refundable processing fee per individual. This fee will be charged at the checkout. This fee is non-refundable and is not included in the price of your trip/class/rental. Paddle Pass holders are exempt from this fee.
