Our instructors and SUP guides are certified in Stand-Up-Paddle on flat water or surf, and in ocean safety. Each individual instructor has his/her own highly-developed intimate understanding and knowledge of the ocean, tides, swells, waves, wind, weather, and wildlife.
We offer Surf excursions, Reef Tours, Full Moon paddles, Kelp Forest excursions as well as international excursions across the border to Mexico and to southern epic surf spots. The water dwellers are awesome as we view local wildlife such as dolphins, whales, seals, turtles, fish, and sea birds; the experience is endless beauty.
Our sessions include simple SUP basics to get you up and paddling. Some of the basics are paddling techniques, physical fitness,
ocean knowledge, and safety. Stand-Up-Paddle is a low-impact form of exercise and great for recovery. We will guide you and your friends through nature's waterways safely and with total enjoyment in mind, body, and spirit.
For the serious SUPers—beginner to advanced—we have in-depth workshops and daily training. We train Stand-Up-Paddle as a form of physical fitness, guiding everyone to use proper technique, posture, and breathing while learning proper form. We encourage everyone to come Stand-up-paddle and keep your Spirit SUP!!
