UP on a SUP Summer Series (June 6, 13, 20, and 27)
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.

NOTE: This list is not to sell anyone anything, it is simply to promote socializing and SUP activities, primarily through the AMC, and was created to be able to get people information about SUP activities readily. You will have successfully subscribed when you land back on the AMC Boston website.
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.
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:
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.
Here is the link for directions and parking:
Parking is limited so carpooling may be helpful- please read the directions for options.
A few things:
CRKC rents out dry bags, but they do not hold keys. You can lock your keys in my trunk if needed.
Wet suits should not be necessary as we put in a request for good weather…and have full expectations that our requests will be accommodated…that being said, bad weather, high winds, and heavy rain will result in a cancelled event. You should wear clothes that you do not mind getting wet, preferably a swimsuit underneath, and certainly not cotton. You may want to bring flip flops down to the waterfront, but bare feet are recommended for paddle boarding. CRKC will make you use their life vests if you do not have one.
