Quick Start Stand Up Paddleboard
Stand up paddleboarding is a new and exciting way to get out into nature while, at the same time, having a full-body, paddling experience. This introductory course is for those without previous stand up paddleboard experience. It begins with learning to paddle in the prone position, progresses to the kneeling position and concludes with the stand up position. Students will learn how to identify the “sweet spot”, conduct basic turns, paddle efficiently by using the “paddler’s box” and utilize techniques for safely falling off the board.
This 1.5-hour course is taught on the Haw River above the dams at both Saxapahaw and Bynum, NC. Participants are responsible for providing clothing and footwear that can get wet, and a change of clothing for the ride home.
Fee: $30 per person.
