Stand Up Paddle Lessons
Stand Up Paddling has become a huge sport in the last ten years. On any given day you can look out on Santa Barbara’s coastline and see people enjoying the views and exercise from their paddleboards. The sport of Stand Up Paddling seamed to explode almost over night. But It’s actually an old sport. People have been Stand Up Paddling for almost a hundred years now!

Our most popular location for SUP lessons is in the Santa Barbara Harbor. We leave from our stand on West Beach and guide you through the protected areas of the harbor. After which if you’re comfortable we take you outside of the harbor in front of Stern’s Wharf and give Santa Barbara a chance to show off her beauty. It’s common to see Fish, Seals, sea lions, pelicans and sometimes dolphins. We also teach in Montecito at Butterfly Beach as well as Haskell’s Beach in Goleta.
Our stand up paddle board Lessons include the board, paddle, wetsuit if needed and the instructor for 90 minutes of private instruction.
