Downwind SUP Course – September 22

Looking for something to do on those windy summer days? Want to ‘surf’ your SUP where there aren’t many breaking waves?

Join us and guest instructor Norm Hann to experience the rush of downwind paddle boarding. It is the perfect blend of the skill and fun of surfing and the fitness and exploration of paddle boarding. These courses are designed for paddlers who want to take their SUP skills, paddling techniques, and touring, surfing or fitness to the next level. Learn surfing techniques as they pertain to downwinding, including reading winds and waves, and work on your efficient forward stroke. Learn to efficiently use the power of the wind and ocean to surf miles and miles of swell along our coasts.
