SUP Basics

The best way to learn to SUP in NYC


Learn to stand-up paddle board – SUP – in NYC with SUP Basics 1-4. Lessons from an ACA-Certified instructor will lead to a more enjoyable SUP experience in NYC and beyond. No swimming or paddling experience is necessary.

Our formula for success: four 1.5-hour SUPing classes. We limit classes to 6 people to give everyone enough attention. Students learn by using touring boards, which have long narrow decks designed to go farther and faster than the short rounder boards used for beginner rentals. Bring yourself and a change of clothes, everything else is provided by us.

If you prefer to learn SUP privately or after group classes end in September, try private lessons. Each session is $120 for 1.5 hours. Remember: these lessons will last a lifetime!

After the Basics, graduates are ready for Intermediate tours on the Hudson River and around NYC. NYC SUPers who become Elites can store their own board at the Pier 84 boathouse and go paddling for free without a guide. They plan their workout according to the day’s tidal currents and catch the sunshine and ocean breeze with paddle buddies.

Get all 4 classes for only $200.
