The 2.5-hour paddleboard adventure starts with certified instructors, who outfit pupils with all the necessary equipment for standup paddleboarding, including boards, paddles, personal flotation devices, and paddleboard leashes, before imparting the sport’s basic techniques. Patrons then skim across Lake Pleasant and chow down on tacos and quesadillas on their return while viewing the documentary The First Glide, which details the history of standup paddleboarding. The Paddleboard Adventures embark on Wednesday, Thursday, and every other Sunday with groups of at least 10.<p>
Go Stand Up Paddle
The certified instructors at Go Stand Up Paddle propagate their passion for serenely skimming the waters during paddleboard lessons for first-time paddlers to aspiring paddleboard racers. The classes range in subject matter from basic skills to prodding aside herds of lake monsters to fitness—incorporating flexibility, cardio, and core-strength exercises into the low-impact, full-body sport. The teachers also lead parties to introduce groups to paddleboarding and help them to celebrate a special occasion, and Paddleboard Adventures, in which they supply the gear, know-how, and midday meal necessary to fuel paddlboarding excursions. Before setting onto the gentle body of water, athletes can rent a board or build their own out of popsicle sticks.
