A nominee in San Diego Magazine’s May 2011 Best Of North County issue, 2 Stand Up Guys’ ASI–certified instructors assist fledgling stand-up seafarers in acquiring sought-after sea legs during 60- and 90-minute paddleboard lessons. Paddling uses boards wider and huskier than traditional surfboards, promoting better balance for paddlers to glide across the water confidently. During both weekend and weekday classes, students learn the basics of paddling—including techniques, etiquette, and safety—and are fitted and equipped with boards and adjustable paddles. Surf enthusiasts can then take to the water to test out their newfound skills and execute aquatic disco moves to impress nearby clownfish. Fusing fun with a full-body workout, paddling is suitable for aqueous adventurers ages 7 and up.
