Course Description

Conditions permitting – Our advanced stand up paddle board surfing lesson will teach you the skills to get past the breakers and then ride them in, opening new waters for you to paddleboard. Before you hit the water, our expert instructors will brief you on surf etiquette, safety skills and proper board and paddle management for turbulent waters.

They'll guide you step by step through the essentials of moving from the beach to the sweet spot behind the break then to time the break and pick your set. You'll practice proper stance and paddle position for dropping-in and catching your first wave. After your instructor demonstrates the technique, it's your turn to ride the waves and feel the rush of skimming over the water – all in the setting of Maine's beautiful coastline.

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.
