Stand up and Paddle! is changing gears to reflect the growing southern Idaho SUP environment. We started to fix paddle board dings for friends and found that the need was growing for experienced professional paddle board repairs in the area. We will continue to provide SUP lessons however our business model will include an emphasis on exopy repairs from broken fin boxes to reconstructing nose, rail, deck, bottom, and tail sections. Our craftsman has Hawaiian experience repairing paddle boards, surfboards, outriggers, and surf skis.
The SUP lesson seasons at the white water park starts in the spring. Lessons include things that don't come naturally like forward and aft pivot turn technique and learning how to get the most glide from a stronger efficient stroke. The cost is a minimal $37 for an hour and a half lesson that includes state of the art boards and paddles.
If you haven't tried stand up paddling yet and want a warm start to the sport check out the West YMCA SUP classes this winter. The water is warm so nothing but a swim suit and good attitude is necessary. Idaho River Sports is the sponsor so call them for more information. Classes are for everyone, you don't need a Y membership to attend.
