Boarding Lessons

Learn to Stand Up Paddle Board on Mission Beach!

Most people don’t know that there is a difference between stand up paddle boarding on the bay and stand up paddle boarding in the ocean.

Anyone who is familiar with swimming in water and has the physical ability to paddle is able to stand up paddle board on flat water with ease. Stand up paddle boarding in the ocean is a completely different experience!

Stand up paddle boarding in the ocean can be a lot more dangerous and a lesson is definitely required for beginners. If you have surfed before, you will find stand up paddle boarding in the ocean easy. Catching waves on a stand up paddle board is much easier than on a surfboard!

Our staff are highly skilled and trained and work closely with industry leaders to stay abreast of current trends in both equipment and lesson management.

We are located just steps from Mission Beach in sunny San Diego.

*Please note that we provide stand up paddle boarding lessons on Mission Beach only if the waves do not exceed 3ft. The safety of our customers is our number one priority.
