PROFESSIONAL LESSONS

GPTempDownload 290.jpg

If it's your first time visiting Paddle Zone, we will start you off with a professional lesson to learn the basics of Stand Up Paddling. Our lessons are two hours in length and your board rental is free for that hour, plus an hour to cruise the bay on your own. If you wish to explore the ocean for longer, let one of our instructors know and we will be happy to add additional rental time to your lesson. 

Our professional lessons cover: 

  • A thorough warm-up and on-land preparation

  • Theory and anatomy of a Stand Up Paddle Board

  • Stand Up Paddle techniques and maneuvers

  • Risks, hazards, and essential safety information

  • An open water exploration of Mismaloya Bay

Group lessons are available for three to six people (maximum six people per instructor). We also offer private and semi-private lessons for single individuals and couples for a more customized experience. 

And—if you don't enjoy the class and you aren't able to stand up on the board—we will return your money no-questions-asked!
