How To Stand Up Paddleboard - Come and Try It For Yourself

June 13, 2014

Every time I would see someone on a paddle board over the past couple of years, I would turn and say to my sweetheart, "Gosh, I want to try that!" But, we'd be ready to go camping, not have a rack on the car, have no idea how much it cost to rent a paddle board and PFDs (personal flotation devices -- that are required because the boards are considered vessels by Dept of Fish and Wildlife.)

So I just hadn't been on one until my boss Cora called me to tell me about Flow Outside, which is a brand new and awesome outfit that offers PaddleFIT bootcamps & SUP Yoga, in addition to the Intro to SUP Classes.

You've probably noticed the groups of SUP enthusiasts enjoying the sun and water at the Bozeman Beach - aka, the East Gallatin Recreation area.

Jen, the proprietor has spent much of her time searching out a life on the water and a way to share that with others. She's now bringing that experience to us. Flow Outside, is a business based on the ideals of sharing their passion for the outdoors and health & wellness. She provides everything needed for the classes including; boards, paddles, flotation devices and straightforward instruction.

On Tuesday morning at 10:30 am, we met at the Bozeman beach and took the Intro to paddleboarding course or SUP. Once you have taken that class you can join in a variety of others. My primary interest is in Yoga and she offers that as well. The rest of her courses can be found by clicking here . Not listed are the "drop-in" social paddles that she will host regularly throughout the summer to anyone who has taken her intro class.

But what you really need to know is that this is the best way to get your feet wet. After just the one class, I feel really confident about my ability on the water and a desire to do it a lot more!

Do you want to give it a whirl? Good News! The first ever Family Paddleboard Festival is coming up on 6/30  from 5-7pm at the Bozeman Beach. Roundhouse will bring equipment for you and your family to demo, There will be Hot Dogs and tons of fun. See you there.
