QUESTIONS ABOUT WALK ON WATER

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (or SUP) is performed on a 9-11 ft surfboard that has a wide and stable top that was made to stand on. Using a one-bladed paddle you stand with your feet parallel and paddle on both sides of the board using your core muscles to stablize your body on a moving surface (water). SUP provides a full body workout for everyone regardless of your fitness level. It is an all encompassing mind/body experience as you connect with nature in a serene atmosphere.
SUP is whatever you make it. A relaxing scenic stroll, a challenging concentrated effort as in a fitness class, or an outright race to the finish. Whatever you choose to do, we will make it happen for you!

* This is a very easy sport to learn. In about an hours time our instructors will have you standing
up on a board, paddling and having fun! Advanced stroke techniques and maneuverability are available but not necessary. We have had success with students age 12 to 75. They say if you can walk, you can SUP.

* Regular SUP (3x a week or more) will build tremendous core strength and will improve your overall fitness from head to toe!

* SUP is a great way to connect with family and friends, it is easy to let the time melt away enjoying your surroundings and socializing, or make it your date night out.

* For women especially SUP is a very empowering sport. For the goal oriented outdoor enthusiast, this is a sport that is easy to master and take your skills with you wherever you or your board may go! It can also be quite meditative to connect with nature one-on-one.

We recommend wearing a swim suit or board shorts with a top.  You likely will not end up in the water at all, so once you start paddling around in the sun, you’ll likely get warm.
Footwear:  Most people paddle barefoot and are fine.  A pair of aquasox or water shoes can be used.
