In a supportive environment, you'll learn the fundamentals of stand-up paddling and the essential water skills for being safe on the water. You'll learn the nose draw plus forward and sweep strokes. You'll also be introduced to seated pivot turns and the fundamentals of moving on your board.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
