Solo Lesson Plan
Want the privacy and freedom to learn to stand-up paddle at your own pace? Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler, our instructors can arrange a lesson plan to fit your needs. Learn how to paddle, maneuver, and balance on a paddleboard in a one-on-one lesson.
This lesson will help you improve your paddle stroke, help you make turns more quickly and teach you how to navigate safely in and out of the Santa Cruz Harbor. Our tour of the wharf will have you glide past sea otters and occasionally the passing dolphin or hump whales that love to visit the Monterey Bay.
Just yourself, wearing comfortable clothing – shorts, t-shirts. We do rent wetsuits for $10. Let us know if you need one.
