Choose from Three Options

Ocean-goers may rent a standup paddleboard for a one-hour, limb-driven skim, speedily skipping or lazily trawling as they see fit, or learn basic paddleboarding techniques with an instructive lesson. Alternatively, during 60-minute Try-N-Fly lessons, first-timers grasp the reins of a training kite from dry land where they practice directing and dealing with the kite's swoops and swerves as they learn to sail the skies.
