Prepare to SUP in NYC and around the world
The Atlantic Ocean floods into and ebbs out from Hudson River several times daily. The water and wind can literally sweep away beginners on SUP in NYC. If you are a Novice or have only learned informally, start by strengthening your technique in SUP Basics. Take weekend classes or set up private sessions with us. SUPers with good technique feel joy – not discomfort – on the water.
After SUP Basics 1-4, start going on Intermediate tours. We take care of the guide, board and logistics. In order of difficulty, they are: Secret Beach, Sushi Trip, Surf City, GW Bridge. Expect not only a workout, but a fun break for lunch at a halfway point as we wait for the tides to turn.
After Intermediate tours, try Advanced tours including: Freedom Tower, Palisades Picnic, Liberty Quest, Governor’s Island, Brooklyn Beach. These are intense multi-hour journeys with a small friendly group. Ride the 2-person Tandem or 4-person Dragon SUP!
After Advanced tours, try Elite tours in this order: Red Hook Ride, Manhattan Circumnavigation, Alpine Adventure, Staten Island. They will prepare you for expeditions around the world!
