       Idaho's Premiere Stand Up Paddleboard Instruction
August is always hot and sunny. If you are thinking about an adventure with your teenagers come try paddle boarding. Our class last night included a mom and her two daughters and this morning we had a dad and his two daughters. Now and then the whole family gives it a go. We even had four generations on the water one day last month. Grandpa was 87! Kids between ages 7 and 12 usually just want to jump off the boards and play so unless they really want a lesson sometimes they have more fun just renting a board and horse around all they want. Kids under 7 can ride along with an adult, and kids older than 12 can usually keep up with class (when their eyes aren't rolling).
Stand up paddling is much more fun when you know a few tricks. Learn five different turns, how to do your best stroke, and how to get a promised (see below copy) full-body-work-out. You learn to SUP with the best paddleboards on the market and professional stand up paddling instruction at very affordable prices. Stand Up and Paddle works in concert with Idaho River Sports shop adjacent to Quinn's pond. Come try! An hour and a half lesson is only $37 and includes everything. That's only a few dollars more than renting a board with no lesson!  In addition I cover all the basics about boards and paddles, a little history of the sport, and water safety. On top of all that...we have a whole lot of fun in the process. 

A standup paddle board promotes balance, core strength, and general fitness while having fun and enjoying the outdoors. The exercise is a resistance workout that strengthens core muscles. Because you paddle standing up, the sport offers a head to toe bilateral exercise that is hard to match. Sandup paddle boarding is a fun way to keep moving and get in shape. Don't worry about a balancing act! If you have the balance to ride a bike, you CAN stand up paddle board.

One of the best things in life is to share knowledge about something you love.  Stand Up Paddling in Boise gives me an opportunity to do just that. You can paddle along side friends and chat, enjoy the challenge of distance paddles and races, or give yourself a full body workout without a gym.  One of my favorite things to do is to take my dog Zeus on a paddle. Stand up paddle board is a traveling skill you can take with you on your next vacation. If you ever had a dream of surfing, this is your best gateway to that sport. Idaho has some great water to paddle from here in the valley to the mountain lakes and rivers that surround us. We would enjoy helping you learn a new skill, and maybe, your new passion!
