We offer the best instruction on the best boards. Each of the four courses serve as a building block for the next. Go as fast as you want over a two-year period, and paddle as much as possible between courses. (Our software lets you customize your own schedule online.) All equipment is provided and brought to the lessons and weeknight practices for you. Watch the video and read the individual course descriptions below.
This four-hour course will introduce you to essential knowledge and safety techniques for open water and moving water stand up paddling. Learn how wind, tides, and current affect stand up paddlers, then learn and practice self and assisted rescue techniques. Each student will perform a solo deep water rescue. Then, this small class will embark on a gentle introduction to the moving water of the Potomac where students will begin to develop an understanding of how to read current and attain upstream.
