Stand-up Paddleboards are fun, great for 'core exercise', and a delightful way to explore the stunning shoreline of Sydney Harbour.

In this short lesson, we spend an hour teaching you about the equipment, basic safety, balance, body alignment, and stroke technique, and then let you loose to explore for an hour. 

Our friendly instructors will have you mastering the basics in no time at all.
