How should I dress?
Yoga clothes, wetsuits, & bikinis are all appropriate. Wear what you will feel the most comfortable in if you are wet. Shorts, tank top, and maybe a windbreaker will work too.
May & June: the water is still quite cold. You can wear a wetsuit or just the neoprene booties on your feet.
July & August: It’s summer! Come in your bathing suit or yoga clothes.. Whatever you are comfortable in. Just remember you will probably get a bit wet sitting on the board at least.
September & October: the water is getting colder. You can wear a wetsuit or just the neoprene booties on your feet. Specialized clothing is also an option.
Why was my class cancelled?
Due to weather and water conditions, we may need to cancel a class up to an hour and a half prior to start of class in which case you will be credited and can reschedule a class. We want you to have the best possible experience – it’s not fun to learn in high winds and choppy waters. Sometimes these conditions exist even if it’s sunny and warm out.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule a class?
If you need to cancel a class, a minimum of 24 hour notice by phone, email or text message is required to receive full credit toward rescheduling a class.
What if I have my own SUPboard?
We don’t offer discounts for people with their own boards. We have over 30 different boards for you to try and keep up to date with the newest boards and brands. You will be able to advance more quickly if you try lots of different ones!
Can I book a lesson for my own group?
We love getting groups of people together that already know each other for team building, bachelorette, birthdays, or other special occasion fun. Email us for group pricing – email@example.com
Can I bring my child?
Private lessons for you and your child to learn together can be booked for $150. Email us to for more information or to schedule – firstname.lastname@example.org
