During this one-hour introductory course, students learn how to operate a standup paddleboard on the flat waters off of Tybee Island.

Immediately following the one-hour introductory course, students will be able to practice newly acquired skills during a one-hour, unsupervised, rental period.
East Coast Paddleboarding
When viewed from a distance, a person riding a standup paddleboard might bear a passing resemblance to the gondoliers who ferry travelers through the waterways of Venice. But these paddlers have the entire ocean to call their canal, and are spared the indignity of wearing striped shirts. East Coast Paddleboarding’s crew outfits adventurers with the equipment and experience necessary to tackle the waters surrounding Tybee Island, whether embarking on calm floats or catching shore-bound waves. The outfitters can also serve as guides, leading tour groups to a nature preserve accessible only by water and pointing out the cresting fins of curious dolphins.
