Private River SUP Instruction in West Virginia

Mountain Surf Paddle Sports

What You'll Get

Once you book a paddleboard lesson. We will contact you with what time trip works best for you! Meet your guide at the river at the National Park Service Stonecliff river access at the agreed upon time. From there we drive upstream 1.5 miles to Stone Cliff river access. There we get you situated with your equipment and go over river and SUP safety. 

We will begin the instruction with the basics. There is a large flat water section where we will work on standing on our boards, paddling forward, turning, and getting back on our board. Once we have the basics down we will paddle upstream a bit to look at some moving water.

While observing the moving water/rapid you will lean a bit about hydrology and what to look for when thinking about going down stream through a rapid. You will learn how to find the deepest channel, how to look for rocks just under the surface, and hazards you need to look out for. After this learning session we will put SUP and river reading together!

Next we take the SUP boards into the moving water and practice our new learned skills! Once you feel comfortable practicing in some moving water we will make our way downstream to the Class 1+ rapid. We will get off our boards and scout out the rapid, pick out the line we want to take and try running it. Depending on your comfort level you can run it on your knees or standing. After running it, we have the option to walk back upstream and running it again!  After the rapid the fun isn't over! We have about 1-mile more of river to work on our SUP skills and enjoying the beauty of the New River.
