For the summer of 2018, Coast to Coast Paddle is introducing Standup Paddleboard Foundations, a five-week workshop designed to help you take your paddling to the next level! Over the course of five weeks, we’ll build both the length and intensity of our paddles, culminating in a “graduation paddle” in which we set our sights on not just our longest paddle, but also the most exposed to conditions. 

Over the course of 5 weeks, we'll learn: 
*The basics of paddleboarding, including paddling efficiently, powerfully, and safely. 
*How to paddle in differing wind conditions, including headwinds, tailwinds, and crosswinds. 
*How to read weather forecasts and respond to unexpected changes in conditions. 
*How to alter planned routes to maximize safety and enjoyment, or, if your route is set, how to use coastal topography, wind, and swell direction to reduce the risk of overexposure. 

This course is designed to build your paddleboarding skills quickly by pushing you safely outside of your comfort zone. While it will build over the course of the 5 weeks, paddlers should expect to feel challenged by the skills practice, length, and conditions that we'll face during the course. Having said that, safety is always our top priority, so everything will be done with that in mind.

Sounds great, sign me up!
