Come and try paddle boarding which is the fastest growing water sport in the world and combine both fitness and the great outdoors. We will teach you the correct paddle techniques while we paddle some of the most beautiful creeks in the lowcountry. Paddle boarding will give you a solid core workout and offer great wildlife viewing. Once the basic skills are learned, the options for touring and paddling are endless. Tours will be offered from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. during the week. Cost is $59 per person.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding Fitness
Looking for a new, fun way to stay in shape? Take your workouts to the pristine waters of Isle of Palms! Standup paddle boarding (SUP) fitness will get you out of the gym and on the water while burning more calories than running on a treadmill! Each paddle boarding class begins with a 15 minute on land instruction to ensure you know how to properly use the equipment and maneuver on the water. Beginners and seasoned paddlers are welcome! You can expect to develop great paddle skills while strengthening your core and improving your overall balance and flexibility. Once the basic paddle skills are accomplished, the instructor will lead the class in core-strengthening exercises on the board similar to Pilates and Yoga (includes push-ups, plank, various core exercises, stretching, squats and other movements / poses that will increase overall balance). And don’t worry...with our seasoned instructors; most students do not fall in the water! Each class is one hour and fifteen minutes. Trip is offered Tuesday and Thursday 8 - 9:15 a.m. Cost is $38 per person.
A 24 hour advanced reservation is required for all water sports. Call 843.886.2292 for day and time availability.
