To learn paddle surfing you'll need a board— and SUP boards are big, averaging between nine and 11 feet long. We can fit you with the proper size according to your height and weight. Boards with a soft deck are ideal for beginners and those who don't want to bother with the tedious chore of waxing. Paddles tend to be six to nine inches taller than the paddler's height, and the more lightweight and easy-to-handle the paddle, the farther you'll travel using the least amount of umph.
Most people are up and paddling on flat water after just 30 minutes.
