What you'll learn in this self improvement class:
Fast track yourself to learn stand up paddleboarding and launch into fitness paddling, tours and more. We will determine and practice the primary paddling technique - Hawaiian, Tahitian or Hybrid – that works best for you.
You will gain an efficient forward stroke and proper form, which is essential and can rarely be self-taught. Skill Build classes and SUP tours are next.
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.

Refund & Cancellation PolicyThere 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.
All sales are final. No refunds will be given. However, MKC will gladly reschedule your reservation with at least 48 hours’ notice and available space on your desired trip/class. If weather conditions or other factors require MKC to cancel a trip/class/rental, you will be rescheduled for the same trip/class/rental at an alternative date/time. If a convenient alternative cannot be found, MKC will offer you a credit certificate to be used before the end of the current season; otherwise the value of the trip/class/rental will be forfeit.
Teacher: Shannon MacDowell
Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Shannon grew up sea kayaking in the fjords of Southcentral and Southeast Alaska. With a background in kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and skiing, her love of outdoor sports and recreation doubled with the discovery of stand up paddle boarding last summer. After the initial wobbly introduction, SUP has become an integral part of her life as both an incredible cross-training tool and a playful water meditation. A certified Pilates instructor, Shannon is psyched to be introducing SUP Pilates to MKC’s palate this season. When she’s not on the water, you can find Shannon in the studio or on the stage. After receiving her BFA in Dance from Rutgers University, Shannon moved to NYC to join the Amy Marshall Dance Company, and has since worked with several other NYC-based modern dance companies.
