We firmly believe that the main reason that stand up paddle is the fastest growing water sport in the world at the moment is because it's easy. Very easy. And it's safe.
There are literally dozens of "how to SUP" or "how to stand up paddle" videos on You Tube, but we recommend you click on this link for the best instruction.If you are going to be paddling with a friend, have them watch the videos too. Then when you go paddling together you can give each other hints to help each other out.
After you have studied these videos, then come and rent a couple of boards from us. It's only $50.00 for half a day or $100.00 for 2 days. Practice what you have learned from the videos. If you think you need more help, you could come to one of our demo days.
Stonker hosts a number of demo days each summer. The purpose of the demo day is to allow you to try out one or sometimes more boards to work out which one is most suitable for you. There may be a small charge for the demo day but the charge is then used as credit against your purchase of a SUP board. Please subscribe to our email list to find out the details about the next demo day.
