Intro to Stand-up Paddle boarding
The Naramata shoreline is perfect for teaching beginner SUP lessons. The village provides two protected bays to ensure there’s always calm water in at least one of them. Our beginner boards are very stable, regardless of your size, making them ideally suited for Okanagan Lake.
This 90-minute session includes equipment familiarization, dry land, water safety, fundamental paddling techniques, and all equipment – board, paddle, leash, PFD, and whistle. Wetsuits and neoprene tops are available to rent on a first-come basis if weather is cooler.
