Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Surfing Summer 2019

Learn the fundamentals of surfing and establish a game plan for exploring Lake Superior. Join us from 9am-5pm at the Island Lake Park Public Beach for our comprehensive prone surfing class with ski boat wake riding. This class features equipment selection, care, board control, paddling efficiency, whitewater impact strategies, pop-up, stance, posture, board trim, edging, angling, turning and surf etiquette.

After prone surfing we move into a surfing style of SUP paddling and culminate with the hottest new trend - foil surfing! You will get to try foil surfing behind a ski boat and feel your board lift up in the air, literally flying above the surface of the water. Our extensive board inventory and short mast large wing foil set-up allows us to match your ability with the overall intensity of the experience. Lunch break topics and our information packet will help prepare you for the surfing journey that lies ahead. Choose from four different dates with a four person maximum group size.
