Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $35 for a two-hour intro-to-standup-paddleboarding course (a $70 value)
  • $45 for a half-day standup-paddleboarding program (a $95 value)

Expert instructors lead students through standup-paddleboarding lessons, guiding newcomers through one-hour intro lessons before setting them loose for an hour of free paddling on the Rio Grande river. They also lead half-day excursions that begin with beach and on-water training before heading 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.
