Welcome to our very first, but definitely not our last Charleston Veggies and Vegans SUP meetup :-)
This is a beginner trip and the goal is to introduce people to paddling on creeks and rivers, but all are welcome.The actual start time is 9am, but I am suggesting planning on arriving at 8:45-8:50. To start, we will have about 10 minutes of instruction on land going over basic techniques and safety. Russell of Low Country SUP and Surf will be be providing the SUP boards and John will be providing the instruction. The rate will be $25 for 2-3 hours if 7 or more people attend, or $30 for less than 7. Payment will be collected at the beginning of the meetup. You are encouraged to bring sunscreen, hat, water bottle, some kind of shoes and a day backpack to carry the water and a snack. We will launch at about 9:20, gather in a safe area, practice a few strokes, then paddle out about 45 minutes, find a place to stop and paddle back by noon. It will be about a 2-3 hour trip. We are expected to see a lot of wildlife, such as dolphins, etc, so might be fun to bring a camera, waterproof of course :)
Thanks to John for all his effort in planning and providing instruction for this event and the awesome image you see below!
