    Intro to Stand Up Paddle Boarding

    Maybe you're missing a sense of adventure in your life. Or maybe you just can't get enough of it. Or maybe you really, really like getting wet. Whatever the reason, this introductory Stand up Paddle Boarding course is sure to hit the mark. Designed for those new to the sport, you'll be practicing the fundamentals in the controlled environment of an olympic-sized swimming pool. You'll get an introduction into the board itself, learning about different types and parts of kayaks, and familiarizing yourself with all of the nomenclature. Then you'll work on paddle stroke techniques on the water, as well as practicing capsizing contingencies, such as wet exits and cowboy rescues. After this class is complete, you'll have the foundation you need to take the next steps in mastering a sport that will open the way to a lifetime of adventure. Or getting wet. Whichever.
