Then Paddle Method’s Power Paddle training classes are what you’ve been waiting for and you can get it all before you go off to work. It’s the better kind of board meeting and 75 minutes of hard charging fun on the water.
Get fit while you get ready for an ocean adventure, finally start SUP surfing and, maybe podium in your first race!
Each class is 75 minutes and includes all necessary gear plus:

Each Power Paddle class will focus on a different area aimed to keep each class fun and challenging.
POWER PADDLE (sample schedule)
Power Paddle Tempo(Tuesday 7:30am – 8:45)
Goals: Increase conditioning by paddling 20 minutes at a sustained high tempo.
Description:The tempo workout is a key to increase paddle endurance. This class will focus on a 20 minute group up-tempo paddle. That means you will be paddling hard but not too hard. Once the tempo session is complete we will take an easy recovery paddle and practice some SUP skills.
Power Paddle Interval (Thursday 9am – 10:15)
Goals: Increase conditioning by paddling high-intensity interval (sprint) training.
Description:Interval training is one of the best ways to increase speed. This class will focus on paddling a series of high-intensity intervals followed by low-intensity recovery periods. Once the interval session is complete we will take an easy recovery paddle and practice some SUP skills.
Check out the POWER PADDLE page for more info on Recovery and Skills; Technique; and Race Day classes and the PADDLE METHOD LIVE SCHEDULE for class times. Also, we will be hosting a SUP Derby day so you can test your board handling skills and stamina. It’ll probably be the most fun thing you’ve done on the water — look for dates to be announced!
