Learn to Stand Up Paddle (SUP Intro. Lesson)

  • Aug 4, 2012 · 10:45 AM
  • Valley Mill Boats

Stand up paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the country (Approximately one million people participated in SUP in 2011). Find out why it's so much fun by taking a three hour introductory SUP lesson on Saturday August 4th from 11am-2pm.


The lesson covers all the fundamentals during the 3hr lesson, and offers up skills challenges, games, and maybe even some SUP yoga.

All equipment is supplied for the lesson and you will be provided with Stride inflatable SUP's for the lesson as well. These are the best boards to learn on because they are easy to paddle, stable, and very forgiving for beginners.


This lesson will take place on the lake at Valley Mill Camp in Germantown MD.

You will be meeting at the kayak shop on the camp property.

Please park by the main office (the first building you see when you pull into the property) and walk down the road marked by the orange kayak. The kayak shop is 50 yards down that road near the outdoor pool ( It has a kayak over the door).

You don't need very much for this lesson. You can wear a bathing suit and go barefoot on the board once you reach the lake. Feel free to bring any food and drink you like (alcohol cannot be consumed before or during the lesson)
