About Group SUP Lesson
Looking for group SUP lessons on the Outer Banks? Farmdog Surf School offers lessons for the novice paddler who is flying solo or who wants to enjoy the camaraderie of taking a course with people looking for a similar challenge. Our lessons are NSSIA certified.
Even if you have paddled before, there’s still plenty to learn from group SUP lessons, especially if you haven’t paddled on the ocean or the sound.
Farmdog Surf School’s group SUP lessons focus on proper safety techniques, SUP etiquette, how to carry your board correctly, how to hold your paddle correctly in prone, kneeling, and standing positions, and how to paddle smoothly and efficiently.
Paddling takes place at one of several scenic locations in the Croatan Sound, on Roanoke Island, or in the Atlantic Ocean, depending on the conditions.
Group SUP lessons include a custom Farmdog Surf School stand up paddle board in either soft or epoxy construction, an adjustable paddle, a PFD (personal flotation device), and a leash.
We recommend that you liberally apply sunblock prior to your outdoor activities and hydrate properly. Farmdog Surf School sells natural, effective sunblock and refreshments at the Nags Head location.
