Basic Skills SUP Class

Every Sunday from 9 a.m. – 11 p.m. and 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Stand Up Paddleboarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world and has recently exploded in popularity in Central Oregon. If you are new to the sport, or looking to fine-tune your skills, this is the class for you.

We will start the class out in our beautiful outdoor classroom on the back lawn where we will discuss appropriate gear, different types of boards and water safety. We will then move on to stroke technique and different methods for balancing on the board and turning.

For the next part of class we will move out onto the Deschutes River and put our new skills to the test.

The Basic Skills SUP Classes are offered every Sunday at Tumalo Creek. Class is $45 and includes gear and instruction as well as an extra hour of board rental time after class to practice your new skills.

Throughout the summer we are also offering Women's SUP nights on Monday and Thursdays from 6 - 8 p.m. and a local's SUP night on Tuesdays. These nights include board rental, PFD and paddle with a little light instruction.
