Stand Up Paddleboard Activities with SURFit USA
May 30, 2013 04:59PM
Sarasota-based SURFit USA offers summer camps, fitness classes, training and stand up paddleboard (SUP) adventure tours for standup paddleboard novices and enthusiasts.
The week-long SUP camps for kids begin in June and are held throughout the summer at various Sarasota County beaches. Safety is Rule #1: all children are required to wear life jackets, regardless of swimming skill, and the classes are taught by certified lifeguards and expert paddlers. Fun comes in at a close second!
Get fit on the beach! SURFit classes cover the gamut, from SUP Yoga, SUP Pilates, performance paddling to improve technique and speed, Beach Boot Camps and private lessons. SURFit offers a range of classes for all ages and all skill levels.
For those wanting to get ready for upcoming races, SURFit offers dedicated training programs that allow you to just show up at the beach and work out with a group on the water. No more transporting your board everywhere.
In August, SURFit will take a group of 10 people on an adventure tour to Juneau, Alaska (yes, SUP in Alaska!); registration is now open. See humpback whales, orcas, black bears, eagles and more in a majestic environment. Paddle alongside glaciers, the rocky and wild Alaska coastline, in some of the most pristine environments in the world, all while walking on water.
