Introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding

Experience the natural perspective of Stand Up Paddleboarding through this American Canoe Association (ACA) registered course. The curriculum is designed to ensure your maximum enjoyment by providing water safety awareness and proper skill development. Participation cards and reference materials will be issued upon completion, so you can continue to refine your paddling technique and boost your confidence while SUPing!

What to bring: Water shoes, sunscreen, breathable clothing (long sleeve shirt with UV protection fabric is always a good idea), hat, polarized sunglasses (with leash), water and snack.

Duration: 3 hours total (with a mix of onshore review and on-water instruction).

Cost: Meetup special price of $45 per person (normally $65). Includes use of board, paddle, PFD and leash. You are welcome to bring your own SUP and gear.

Payment: We will collect payment on the day of the event. Cash is King!

NOTE: Class size is limited to maintain appropriate student/instructor ratio. If you plan to bring a friend, please have then join the Meetup group and register for the event so they can receive any updates.

Inclement Weather Policy: Light rain or shine is fine, but if there is threat of severe weather (thunderstorms, lightning or high winds), we will contact you ONE HOUR prior to the scheduled time and reschedule the event.

Since 1992 Gulf Coast Kayak has been considered the local favorite outfitter. We look forward to meeting you and spending time together on the water!

      Hi Ross. No worries and thanks for the suggestion. A phone call would be the best means of letting someone know a spot has opened up, but unfortunately Meetup profiles do not capture phone numbers. We rely on event page visits and automatic email notifications to provide updates. Going forward, we will send a separate email message as soon as we see that someone has moved up. We hope to see you on the water soon!

    Hi there!! I'm very excited to learn how to paddle board!!! I have always wanted to try it. I am bringing my boyfriend, he doesn't have a meet up profile. I pretty much use mine and then tell him about the activities and the details . Does he need to create one in order to go with?
