Standup paddleboarding is the fastest growing watersport in the world for a good reason: it's fun! Whether you're looking for a great cross-trainer to supplement any sport or it's your first introduction to paddling on the Hudson, SUP has something for everybody. Our beginner classes focus on the fundamentals - where and how to stand, the basic propulsion and maneuvering strokes, basic navigation skills, and how to get back on the board if you fall off! Intermediate classes and tours focus on skill refinement, efficiency, and building stamina.
During the fall, our two hour Beginner SUP class is offered most Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays . Our Intermediate SUP class is a guided tour and can be scheduled in place of our Beginner classes as desired. We are also offering a race and endurance SUP class called SUP Race Training, get in touch with questions!
Additionally, we now offer SUP YOGA! Yep, it's fantastic. The hour long class blends traditional yoga with the experience and challenge of being on an SUP. This class can be targeted towards folks of ALL ability levels. Yoga can be taken either as a regularly scheduled group, or private experience.
All of our instructional classes and tours are based on a rate of $50 per hour. We offer a 20% discount to individual participants who pay in advance for 10 classes-Click here to find out more!. We also have a SUP club, where you can store your board with us - we offer a selection of boards tuned to the metro waterways - or you can use our boards for a very modest practice fee.
