Stand Up Paddleboard Classes
SUP101: Aloha QuickStart
By now you've probably seen Stand Up Paddlers, seemingly walking on water! Check out this wonderful new sport! Give Stand Up Paddling a try in our introductory SUP class. SUPing has become incredibly popular in a few short years because it's so fun, easy, and another GREAT way to get on the water and it's good for you too. No previous paddling or surfing experience is necessary. This 3-hour session in the sheltered water of the Oakland Estuary (launching from our dock at Jack London Square) will get you started, and you'll be cruising in style in no time. Our SUP boards are great for novices - great for rentals, too, once you've completed the class.
This class is equivalent to an American Canoe & Association Level 1 course.
Cost: $89 Minimum Enrollment: 3) includes board, paddling gear and a coupon for 50% off future SUP rental!
Prerequisite: No experience necessary, however, a good physical condition is required to assure an enjoyable class. The minimum age for the class is 14 years; children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

SUP201: Essentials of SUP
Are you ready to take SUP to the next level? In this class, you will develop the skills needed to paddle effectively in wind, waves and current! We'll review fundamental stroke technique, then get you practicing new moves that will have your board dancing on the water with maneuvers such as nose rudder, cross-board draw, paddling in the surfer stance, and bracing strokes. As we paddle out into the Oakland Estuary, "blending strokes" becomes more natural while practicing upwind, downwind and crosswind paddling. It's all about moving your board where you want it, and having more fun while doing it! This class is equivalent to American Canoe & Association Level 2 course.
Cost: $99 (Minimum Enrollment: 3) includes board, paddling gear and a coupon for a one-hour future SUP rental.
Prerequisite: Essential of SUP or Equivalent, and recent paddling experience strongly encouraged
