SUPgraySCREENTLC partner REI is giving a special opportunity for TLC members to try Stand Up Paddleboarding with a special TLC-only discounted class! Come learn everything you need to know to get started in the exciting sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding. SUP offers a great total body workout and is a great activity for lakes, rivers and the ocean. In this class you’ll learn the proper stance for balance and control, essential paddle strokes and turning techniques, as well as how to choose the right board and paddle. Courses will be held on protected water, and no experience is necessary. Come with us to learn this hybrid of surfing and paddling and find out how to walk on water!

  • To become familiar with SUP, equipment, and proper clothing to safely and comfortably pursue SUP
  • To learn effective paddling skills, balance, positioning, movement and falling/recovery techniques
  • Introduce the rewarding aspects of SUP by highlighting the benefits, some places to paddle and the various activities that take you onto the water, with an emphasis on respect for the marine/aquatic environment.

TLC members will get $25 off the regular price of the class, so you can embrace this unique opportunity to get outside for just $40! Email Membership and Community Outreach Coordinator Margaret Sands msands@triangleland.org for the link to register.
