$45 for a Half-Day Standup-Paddleboarding Program ($95 Value)

Expert instructors lead students through standup-paddleboarding programs, leading half-day excursions that begin with beach and on-water training. Instructors and students then head out to Cochiti Lake to practice strokes and turns.

SouthWest WindSports

The sun dances on the placid surface of the Rio Grande river, the wind carving peaks and valleys in the cerulean fabric of the water. A windsurfing board suddenly tears across this calm waterway, propelled by the wind and the shouts of jubilant windsurfers nearby. Obscure terminology and sailing theory soon fade into the background as students fly across the river during a windsurfing lesson, in which instructors provide encouragement and advice. When not chasing sandwich-stealing mermaids, instructors lead lessons in the slower-paced methods of standup paddle boarding, taking newcomers through intro classes on the Rio Grande and the more experienced on half-day excursions on Cochiti Lake.

Customer Reviews

This company was very easy to work with, prepared for the excursion, and very pleasant.

We had lots of fun...who knew, on the Rio Grande! Michael was fun and helpful:) Needed a little more clarity in the 'what to bring' list...didn't know that you could bring 'stuff' on the paddle board. Seemed like part of the list was specific to the windsurfing experience. Overall great experience and I would do it again!
