Stand Up Paddle Board SUP Sessions:

With this 1.5 – 2 hour session you will learn the basic skills necessary for enjoying SUP safely and efficiently. During the dry land portion, you’ll learn about the equipment and review safety and practice paddling basics. Then to the water where you’ll progress from paddling on your knees to standing up. You’ll practice a proper and efficient forward stroke as well as how to turn and stop your board. Most of all, you’ll have FUN! If you already completed the Intro Session (with Surf Reston) you can jump in and practice on your own for a discounted rate! We take plenty of photos!

Once you have participated in your first session with Surf Reston you qualify for a discounted rate to practice your skills at a discounted rate. Please note, an introductory session is required for all first time visitors!

Our sessions are scheduled primarily on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays and/or Sundays on Lake Anne at the Wiehle Avenue Boat Ramp. We hold sessions periodically on Lake Audubon, Lake Newport, and Lake Thoreau.
