This three-hour lesson/tour includes a few fun facts about the history of the sport, terminology, and a thorough orientation to the three primary pieces of equipment: board, paddle, and pfd. You'll also learn how to properly lift and carry a stand up paddleboard, as well as proper launching and landing techniques. Various stances are practiced, and turning and propulsion strokes are introduced. All will culminate in a casual paddle around the scenic Widewater area of the C&O canal.
Our high-stoke, three-hour beginner stand up paddleboard tour takes place on the Widewater section of the C&O Canal in Potomac, MD. Located just minutes from Washington DC and literally across the street from a historic inn for lunch or dinner and a short drive from a full-service conference and event center for your event needs, this trip offers your group of 10-30 people a "quick start" stand up paddleboard lesson for beginners and the opportunity to learn about the flora, fauna, and significant history of the C&O Canal on a leisurely tour of this scenic flat water area that's teaming with wildlife. All paddling equipment is provided on site, and the trip's proximity to the inn and conference center makes for a totally walkable, all-inclusive retreat for your team! Here's what is provided:
