Tampa Bay SUP’s dedicated team of guides instructs novices in the basics of standup paddleboarding across the Tampa Bay/Clearwater area. Each one-hour session, held at students’ choice of location within 30 miles of Safety Harbor, starts with 10 minutes of prep time on land as teachers lead pupils through water safety and the tenants of paddleboard etiquette namely, how to row with their pinky up. Once on the water, students spend 20 minutes learning how to get on and off the board, stand up, paddle, and turn. After training, clients are free to enjoy a leisurely paddle, which affords a lofty vantage point to gaze upon marine wildlife and boosts core strength so that students may wrestle them into submission.
Tampa Bay SUP
Standing atop a board, a paddler rhythmically dips an oar into Old Tampa Bay's sparkling waters, smoothly skimming the surface while soaking in views of the sun sinking beyond the horizon. Tampa Bay SUP's team welcomes the uninitiated and veterans alike to experience this for themselves via paddleboard lessons and rentals. Their lessons last 20 minutes before students are free to enjoy leisurely paddling, which affords lofty vantage points from which to gaze upon marine wildlife and boosts core strength so that students may wrestle the animals into submission. Once they are ready to go out on their own, paddlers can request that staffers bring boards to various launch sites around the Tampa/Clearwater region, or pick them up at Tampa Bay SUP's beachside shops. Tampa Bay SUP also rents kayaks with all the necessary equipment included, sells paddleboards, and gives tours.
