This two-hour lesson and guided tour is geared toward first-timers and beginners starting in a protected bay area so that everyone has an opportunity to get their “sea legs.” After folks are feeling comfortable on their boards, we head out for paddle.
Instructors will talk about on-the-water safety, decision-making, essential safety gear, selecting the appropriate size and type of board, paddle selection, and basic accessories. The skills covered during this lesson include standing up on a board for the first time, lifting and carrying a paddleboard, launching and landing, paddleboard stance, the forward stroke, basic turning strokes, and stopping. No experience is necessary for this lesson but the conditions of the day (wind, waves, etc.), will determine the difficulty level.
Transportation is not included in the per person fee, but Mare will coordinate travel to the launch point via car or train (the launch point is accessible via the Metro North Hudson Line to Croton Harmon Station and a 20 minute walk).
