NOLA Paddleboards equips sea wayfarers with the materials and knowhow they need to propel themselves down the waterways of New Orleans sans motor or fins. Imported from Hawaii, stand-up paddleboarding is the beginner-friendly love child of surfing and canoeing, inheriting surfing’s iconic board shape and canoeing’s steering technique. Taught by owner Jeff Lakey—a certified beach lifeguard and EMT—the 90-minute paddleboarding lesson introduces aspiring paddlers to proper technique, reinforces water-safety skills, and reviews the shapes of oceanic traffic signs. Class size never exceeds five students, allowing participants to bask like sea lions in the direct glow of instruction. Paddleboarding promotes core strength and treats the eyes to visions more soothing and less likely to be interrupted by a dodgeball fight than those found in a typical gym.
Offering BYOB art classes in a welcoming, instructor-assisted atmosphere, Corks N Canvas provides a laidback setting for self-expression. Participants will receive step-by-step instruction to craft striking artwork they can take home at the end of the session and place above their mantle, secret trap-door bookcase, or army-men-figurine reenactment of the battle of Pork Chop Hill. Choose among several sessions (click on the address of your chosen location to see a calendar of events) that teach budding strokesters to paint vibrant doggie portraits, landscapes, or abstract-expressionist renditions of the DMV. The creative paintventure may finally spark the dormant artist within that’s been reclusively hiding like Boo Radley since the finger-painting period.
Within the springy confines of Space Walk’s Vertical Rush, tykes ricochet like excited electrons across tunnels, slides, and climbing walls. The springy obstacle course is one of hundreds housed inside Space Walk of Greater New Orleans’ 43,000-square-foot facility. Though those bounce houses typically measure 15’x15’, the facility can supply revelers with inflatables that measure up to 23-feet tall.
To ensure safe gravity defiance, trained bounce experts help parents hone in on an inflatables that suits tykes’ ages, interests and varying Buzz Aldrin impersonations. Additionally, the staff not only delivers and sets up houses, but happily trains party throwers in proper bounce-house technique, along with scrubbing down the houses before and after use.
