Up on a SUP Summer Series - Week 2

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Trip dates: Thursday, June 13, 2019 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Join us this summer for our Up on a SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) series! We are eager to get out on the water, socialize, get to know others who love paddle boarding, and to meet and introduce new people to this fabulously fun sport.

Our June series will be focused on getting people Up, especially beginners and newbies who have never been on a board, want to gain confidence in their balance, work on various paddle strokes, and learn to maneuver their boards with flexibility and control.

We will be hosting our initial paddles at Blessing of the Bay Boathouse in Somerville in collaboration with Charles River Kayak and Canoe. Classes are run Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. You can sign up for 1 class or all class (must sign up for each class individually) . Other class dates are June 20, 27. Classes are limited to 10 participants, so sign up soon. Bad weather, high winds, and heavy rain will result in a cancelled event.

. If you have never had a seasons pass from CRKC, you are lucky! They are offering first time season pass holders a pretty fabulous discount, and you can sign up here: https://www.paddleboston.com/bookings/selectitems.php?showCart=PaddleSea...

If you don't want to commit to the season, rentals are available at this location for these events. CRKC is also offering a 20% discount on all rentals specifically for our Thursday events, so that means that your rental will be $16 instead of the full $20 per hour. If you have your own SUP, you are free to bring your board. You will be responsible for wearing a life jacket if you have your own board.

Our June paddles at the Blessing of the Bay Boathouse location is to provide a city accessible, local, and T accessible access point. While we realize it may not be the most aesthetically awesome place to paddle, our plan is to gather a weekly social community to get people Up on a SUP. Other paddles will be offered in different locations as we gather feedback and as the summer progresses.
