Friendly First Timers

Aloha !!! If you have never paddled before and want to try SUP , this is the class for you !! Entering our 5th season we have taught over 18,000 people how to SUP with this introductory program. Check the reviews, we offer a safe fun learning and enjoying environment !!  Everything you need is provided !! A properly sized paddle and board, land and water instructions, and a guided tour with super fun and friendly instructors !! We will help you improve your Sup skills with each paddle stroke you take.  This class will focus on teaching you the basics and taking your paddling to the intermediate level.  We will cover everything you need to know about the paddle stroke, how to get up, where to stand, and how to stay safe and enjoy!


Join us for a paddle on the beautiful Winter Park chain of lakes. All Beginners are welcome as we will have at least two instructors on hand. Bring water, a hat or sunglasses, and water friendly clothing. Board, paddle, and instruction are included. See you on the water :)


This class will last 90 minutes!  Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can be started by 9:00am.
