SUP Lessons & Tours

Never Paddleboarded Before? No Worries!

Come enjoy the beauty and wildlife of the Santa Barbara Harbor as few have seen it. No experience is necessary! Our professional staff are trained to help you learn the basics of stance, paddle strokes, safety and recovery, which will leave you confident and capable to go out on your own the next time. Come paddle with us in Santa Barbara!

Guided Lessons

Guided lessons are an hour and half and include the SUP equipment, life vest, and instruction. Lessons can be scheduled at most anytime of day but are subject to prior reservations, wind and weather conditions. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call or send us an email and we will be sure to get back to you as quickly as possible. You can also scroll down and click on book now to make a reservation right away.

What To Expect

We’ll spend the first 5 minutes going over how to use the equipment including where and how to stand on the SUP, appropriate paddle height, grip and stroke technique. And, just in case, we’ll go over what to do in the event you fall in. After the brief land lesson, we’ll head out through our beautiful harbor and make our way over to Stearns Wharf. We often see seals, pelicans and other sea life along our way. It’s a spectacular and unique way to enjoy one of Santa Barbara’s most prized gems.

Super fun!

My daughter and I met with Thomas to take an SUP tour in Santa Barbara. His communication was prompt and clear while setting up logistics for that morning. We had a super fun time! Thomas took us on a tour that matched our skill just right. Would highly recommend!

Thomas was a fantastic stand up paddle board instructor! As first timers, Thomas brought the perfect balance of helpful tips and relaxed enjoyment. We made it all the way around the bay and even got to see some seals! I would recommend it to anyone.
