Learn one of the fastest growing sports in paddling; stand up paddling.
This lesson is 3hrs long, and all gear is included with instruction.

Lesson takes place at Valley Mill on their private, safe, stream fed, man-made lake. You will meet at the kayak shop and walk a short distance to the lake.
Many skills, drills, and games will be introduced to you by their friendly, experienced, and patient instructors.
They use two different kinds of boards for the lesson, so you can try both. We use the Stride inflatable board, and the Jackson roto-molded plastic board.
People love this lesson, and afterwards you'll probably want a board of your own!

Feel free to bring a cooler with drinks/food (no alcohol is allowed during the lesson)

Space is limited to 10 students!

Payment in advance is required to rsvp "yes"

Must weigh between[masked]lbs

If you have any questions feel free to call Valley Mill at [masked]

Special Offer of just $49 per person for members of this meetup

    Mark was a terrific instructor. We had some fun and the weather turned out to be really nice. Can't wait to try this again!

    Saturday is looking quite wet. Would we still be a "go" if it rains or will there be a rain date?

    I really want to try this but unfortunately I'll be out of town this weekend (and the event is full), is there going to be another one scheduled soon? I hope so!

    Due to a chance for bad weather on Saturday, are you offering refunds? If not, is is possible to arrange a transfer of tickets to someone else who may be interested? Samantha (already RSVP'd) and myself would be willing to transfer or refund our tickets.

      Good morning - I'm hoping to get a reply on the above. I checked the weather this morning and it looks like we're in for rain/thunderstorms on Saturday.

    Nadine- the water temp is already up to 65 with this warm weather, so it should be just fine May 11th

      Samantha- I posted a reply to your question above

    We are offering a bail-out option for tomorrow's lesson. They are calling for showers and maybe a storm, but the weatherman is right only 50% of the time. The class goes rain or shine- you are going to get wet regardless. If anyone wants to switch to the Sunday 11-2 lesson this weekend, there are 10 slots open. That's this Sunday, May 12th. Just email me at [masked] if you have paid and want to switch to this Sunday

    Thanks
