SUP 101 Half Day

Beginner | Ages 8 & up

Stand-up Paddleboard 101 teaches you the basics of paddleboarding, first on land and then in the lake.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding Basics Class

Want to learn stand-up paddle board basics? You get three to four hours with an instructor by your side, beginning with a thorough introduction to the boards and gear, then you’ll head to Lake Isabella for further SUP instruction and time to try out your new skills.

We realize that everyone learns at their own pace, but whatever your pace, our instructor is with you every step (or paddle) of the way, from the initial wobble-legged stance on your board, to cruising a friendly water trail on the lake, to experimenting with more advanced strokes and maneuvers. All the while, you’ll be reviewing and practicing the etiquette that is so crucial to water recreation.
