Lopez Island, WA
Please arrive dressed in your swimsuit/trunks, sandals that are strapped on, and sun protection (hat/visor/chapstick/sunscreen...). You will be outfitted with a SUP board, life jacket, paddle, and leash. Your 2-hour lesson begins with a quick on-shore introduction where your guide will present basic skills and answer any questions you have. Then we're in the water to practice kneeling and standing on the board, beginning paddlestrokes, and balance! As you gain comfort on the board, we'll move away from shore and take a short trip to get you in the rhythm of SUPing.
