Get a chance to practice and train with the woman in this growing SUP Community. Refine and improve that ever so important forward stroke and feel how efficient paddling will help you stay with the group and feel less fatigued. As we travel into more challenging conditions, feel how board control and trim helps us stay on track and keep on our desired line. These paddles are designed to give you training and exposure to open water conditions so that you can explore your local coast with confidence. We combine fitness, technique, balance, preparation and stamina in a fun, informative way within our favorite paddling destinations throughout Narragansett Bay. Give it a try, its a great way to get out and exercise with like minded people in a beautiful setting.
