Stand up paddling has emerged as an easy and exciting way to combine a strong core workout with the enjoyment of being out on the water. In this fun and active experience, you will learn the fundamentals of stand up paddling including etiquette, safety, equipment, and paddling technique. Then set off on Mission Bay to put your new skills to the test. Once you have successfully completed our stand up paddling introductory course, you will be qualified to rent our boards on Mission Bay.
Experience amazing yoga practice outdoors and on the water! Using stand up paddleboards as a floating mat, we will practice a sequence of asanas (yoga poses) on the flat water of Mission Bay. While no prior yoga experience is necessary, this practice will challenge your individual edges of flexibility, focus, strength, and balance. We will conclude with a relaxing savasana (meditation) and finally a short paddle back to shore.
This is an intense and athletic class which consists of a strong distance paddle, soft sand run and sprint intervals, cadenced and interval paddle strokes. Prepare for a SUP race or just add this to your weekly fitness regimen.

Be ready to improve your SUP skills and accomplish a rigorous workout while enjoying fun on the water.
Have fun learning the basics you need to know to paddle a kayak safely and effectively. Using sit-on-top kayaks, we will begin by learning how to control our boats. Next we will learn some maneuvers and techniques that make kayaking more fun and safe. Then we're off to tour Mission Bay for a chance to use our new skills in action. Be sure to wear clothes that are comfortable for swimming.
Enjoy the beauty and romance of Mission Bay under a full moon! We will meet before sunset for an informal potluck barbecue (we supply the charcoal and grill, you bring your favorite item to cook). After a short skills session, we will launch at sunset for a pleasant paddle under the moon and stars. Please bring a change of clothes for after the trip (your paddling clothes may get damp) and we'll supply all the equipment. No prior paddling experience is necessary, so come join the fun!
