Herbert Hoover won Americans’ hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a paddleboard in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 90-minute standup-paddleboard lesson (a $45 value), plus a one-hour paddleboard rental (a $16 value), from BayCreek Paddling Center (a $61 total value). Standup-paddleboard classes are held Friday afternoons as well as Saturday and Sunday mornings from June through September. Paddleboard rental is not valid for the day of the lesson.

The paddlemongers at BayCreek Paddling Center have spread the gospel of oared outdoor watersports with rentals and lessons for more than 15 years. Sharpen your strokes during a 90-minute standup-paddleboard lesson, in which a friendly staff member will run through the basic equipment and conditions, such as comfortably carrying and mounting a paddleboard, proper safety precautions, and how to back flip while jumping through a hoop of fire. Once boarders have a good grasp of the concepts and their manual propeller, instructors will dive into turning techniques and effective methods for approaching headwind. After the lesson, participants will understand enough of the intricacies of the Hawaiian forward stroke and the C-stroke to take out their own paddleboards for an hour on a different day and attempt to teach the water how to love.

BayCreek Paddling Center

Canoes float under a sunny sky, kayakers speed along lush riverbanks, and standup paddleboards engage core muscles in adrenaline-pumping workouts. With dozens of watercraft for rent and sale, BayCreek Paddling Center's team brings aquatic adventures like these to life. Their staff members, which range from young enthusiasts to 30-year industry veterans, launch customers into Irondequoit Creek, where they can float amid an orchestra of bird songs and opera-trained fish. In addition to rentals, the staff guide activities. Aboard their various watercraft, certified instructors lead lessons and nature tours that wind through glacier-carved terrain and former Seneca Native American lands.
