Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is the fastest-growing paddlesport in the world. Come out with our experienced instructors and learn how much fun it is! The teaching progression is similar to that of kayak or canoeing with a twist of surfing. We offer lessons on both the lakes and the rivers in the area.
Our instructors will start out with the lake progression on a flat section of the river. You will next learn board tilts so you can carve in and out of the currents on the river. Before heading down the river your instructor will give you a thorough SUP safety talk and make sure you are comfortable with self-rescue and river language. You will progress downstream with your instructor learning how to peel in and out of eddies first on your knees and then standing up. Learning to ferry across the river is the last skill needed before you are ready to start surfing every river wave you can find! You don't need huge waves to have fun on a SUP, you will be entertained with every little eddy, wave, or riffle in the river. As you travel down 1-9+ miles downstream you will get to practice your skills through the Class I-II rapids of the very scenic Snake River.
