About Urban Wave
Chani and Sarah have trained in some in some pretty arduous conditions, paddleboarding up the Detroit River against a wind of 15 knots and training at Seal Island, home of the Navy SEALs. Compared with the sounds of live-action gunfire and the scent of purple smoke bombs, the placid inland lakes of Michigan are a welcome relief.
The passionate paddleboarding proprietors of Urban Wave venture out to any body of water to introduce novices to the unique watersport. Students learn to stand up on boards and maintain balance, strengthening cores with each forward and backward stroke. Urban Wave requires all its instructors to be certified in first aid, CPR, and AED, as well as proficient in several dialects of mer-language.
