Introduction To
Standup Paddleboard

This is a great first step in learning how to maneuver a standup paddleboard (SUP). The class is taught using SUPs that offer the most stability for beginning paddlers. You will learn about carrying, launching, basic strokes, balancing, and maneuvers. Jumpstart your paddling with one of Umiak's ACA certified instructors. If you rent a SUP and decide to buy, one rental price will be deducted from your purchase. Umiak has the largest showroom of stand up paddleboards in Vermont, so come in and test our inventory.

In two hours Umiak's kayaking expert Sawyer was able to take a family that had never kayaked before and made us completely comfortable to do a 4 hour river trip the next day. The instruction was easy and personalized. Sawyer fielded all sort of different questions and built our confidence. He definitely was the introduction we needed to the sport.
