Urban Wave is focusing on guided tours and private lessons for the 2017 season. We are not continuing our beach rental program at this time because our location on Lake Michigan requires a paddler understand how to be safe with winds, currents, and heavy boat traffic. We are very committed to safety first! We will consider rentals to paddlers who have sufficient prior experience.
Guided Tours and Lessons are available with Sarah Mason, a Level 2 SUP Instructor certified by the American Canoe Association. Only 9 Level 2's in the state! Sarah has given lessons over 5 years to more than a thousand people ages 7-85. Classes are kept small from 1-3 people to allow for individualized training and fun. Lessons incorporate the ACA curriculum and usually last 1.5 hours including dry land instruction before getting into the water. Sarah's proven guidance will take you from novice to Level 1 Sup where you will walk away feeling comfortable on your board armed with paddle skills to navigate on your own. Plus, SUP is a great cross trainer for pretty much all sports.
Why is a lesson important when everyone says the sport is so easy? Sarah guarantees everyone benefits from a lesson so you can really experience the full body fitness this sport offers. For example, most beginners only use their arms paddling that can eventually lead to shoulder injuries and many do not how to turn their board in an efficient manner not only limiting their options but also endangering their safety.
Costs range from $55-75 depending on # of adult people. All equipment included. Minors (under 18) contact Sarah for more information .
