Our World-Class Introductory Stand Up Paddle Lessons are held in the beautiful reef protected blue-water lagoon adjacent to our surf safari shop location. The crystal-clear coral laden waters provide an idyllic flat-water playground for learning and recreation. When you combine this with our reputed Olympic Caliber instruction, your success and fun is guaranteed. Instruction will cover a thorough introduction to boards and paddles and match you with the best equipment possible for your lesson. Emphasis on safety is a priority. We will cover the fundamentals of paddle and stroke technique, board control, navigation, and ocean condition assessment on the beach and in the shallows. Next you will embark out onto the lagoon to practice, learn, and explore. Your instructor will be close and guide you as you improve your skills and enjoy the amazing views of local marine life and mountain island seascapes.
Stand Up Paddle is easy to learn in one lesson and is amazing for building and strengthening balance, core, posture, circulation, breathing, relaxation and discovering a new mode of water transportation. The lessons presented in this course will give you a solid foundation and allow you to make rapid progress in the sport. It will be one of your most memorable vacation excursions, one you can relive at home on any body of calm water.
It’s simple, easy to learn, and fun to do with friends or alone. This is an individual water sport that uses a style of paddling similar to that of the outrigger canoe, but you stand upright on a specially designed board and utilize an elongated paddle.
90 minute lessons are provided in either the Group or Private lesson setting. Group classes will have a maximum of 4 students per one instructor and there will be two instructors for every 5 to 8 students.
