101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

Surfski class

Fast is fun and there is not much out there that is as fast and as fun as Surkski's. While at first we thought they were for advanced paddlers only we were wrong. This is a great boat for paddlers of almost all abilities and we are putting together a top notch clinic to get you on the water.

Surfskis are fun to paddle on calm water as well as the open ocean. They are very fast, very safe (sit-on-top and self-bailing), lightweight (about 30 lbs), and incredibly maneuverable with a foot-operated rudder. In this session, we provide stable models to teach essential skills such as body posture, use of the wing paddle, and remounting the surfski in open water.

 

We welcome Tahoe Waterman Jay Wild (pictured below) to the shop to lead this clinic. We even have boats available to rent or you can bring your own. We will also have some of the high performance Epic Surfski's available for you to test ride after the clinic.

Surfski

This clinic is perfect for first time Surfski paddlers as well as intermediates looking to improve their paddling.

A wetsuit is not a bad call but not necessary. Do dress in quick dry clothing based on synthetic fibers. No cotton.

When - 9:30 to 11 on Dec. 9th (alternate dates Jan 20th, Feb 3rd, Mar 3rd)

Where - 101 Surf Sports San Rafael - 115 Third St, San Rafael, Ca 94901

- Forward Stroke

- Boat handling and Rudder Control

We'll also have an open session to answer any questions you may have. Jay will tailor his instruction to meet your individual needs and get your paddling game on the rise.

Cost $69 with your own boat or we can provide boat, wing paddle, and life jacket for $20 additional.

This clinic is an incredible value for the money and we look forward to seeing you on the water. Buy an Epic Surfski within one week of the clinic and we will credit the full price of the clinic to your purchase.
