Paddleboarding under the Golden Gate Bride

Crissy Field is not one of the easiest places to paddle but it is one of the most rewarding. Don't take our word for it though and come try it for your self. 

We take advantage of the near windless winter days to take you on a life changing paddle. There is no cost for this event. With that said special gear is highly recommended. 

Due to the winter weather pattern and the general cooler weather of Crissy field we highly recommend neoprene based attire. While more experienced paddlers may not need it you will have the most fun if you are wearting a wetsuit. Longer boards - 11'6 or longer - along with leashes are best. And remember Life Jackets are required by law. 

Paddleboarding at Crissy Field

If schlepping a board to San Francisco is not in the cards we are happy to bring a board for you and return it to the shop. The cost is $100 plus tax and includes the paddle, PFD, and leash. This will be a high end displacement hull optimized for San Francisco Bay. Please call the shop at 415-524-8492 to arrange. Give us at least 48 hours notice. 

All paddle craft are welcome.

Here's how it works. We meet at 9am at the windsock at Crissy Field. The specific days have been chosen to give us the best chance to paddle up from Crissy, go under the Golden Gate Bridge and return to Crissy field. We start our paddle promptly at 9:30am.  A 101 Surf Sports guide will be there to assist you how ever this is a PADDLE AT YOUR OWN RISK event. Usually 90 minutes on the water. 

We have 5 dates set but will be adding more as the season progresses. No RSVP needed if you have your own gear.
