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.

" Umiak provides convenient shuttle service to the Waterbury Reservoir for an afternoon of kayaking or canoeing. They make it very simple and shuttle a kayak from their store to the launch point for you at scheduled times. You can spend 2 or 4 hours kayaking on the reservoir and return to the same launch site. They were informative, helpful and polite. The reservoir was very quiet on a weekday afternoon and although a bit too early for peak fall colors, it was a very pleasant trip. "
