SUP Shack - Santa Cruz Harbor: One-Hour Standup-Paddleboard Rental or a 90-Minute Beginners' Standup-Paddleboard Lesson at SUP Shack (Up to 56% Off)

Choose Between Two Options

In groups of three to six, beginners learn the basics of standing up, steering, and paddling during the standup-paddleboard lesson, which includes a board and paddle rental. Then they take a tour of Santa Cruz Harbor with the instructor and learn which spots are the best for exploration and which are off-limits. Lessons are offered Mondays and Tuesdays at 9 a.m., and are recommended for those who have not paddleboarded in the past year or have never paddle boarded in Santa Cruz Harbor. The one-hour rentals give riders a chance to hit the waves on a fast 10-foot Angulo board after the lesson or on a separate date.

SUP Shack

Trudie Ransom knows just how addictive the sensation of standing above the waves can be. After just a few trips out on her board, she not only began training with the standup-paddleboarding master Andy Whitman from Angulo boards, but also opened up SUP Shack. From her experience shadowing Whitman, she decided the best way to introduce people to the sport was with Angulo's soft, 10-foot boards, which serve as an easy surface to learn on while spending a day on the waves or taking one of the shop's classes or tours. Classes never contain more than six students, allowing each student to have the one-on-one attention needed to master the art of balancing and maneuvering the board. Once pupils are sure of their strokes, the shop's instructors lead guided tours that slip out across the rippling blue mirror and past the sights of the harbor or tackle the more advanced paths past sea-lion habitats. Late-evening tours pause as the sun sets over the ocean, filling the sky with color like somebody inciting peacocks to riot.
