Star Wars and Stand Up Paddle

Ok so there is no connection between Star Wars and Stand Up Paddle (I’m working on it believe me). We at Stand Up Paddle Tobago are big star wars nerds and are freaking out at the latest teaser trailer for the new star wars movie. Plus Rob and Lucy said they were doing there best Jedi Lightsaber impression, so that is where the caption is from. Here are a few pictures from their first stand up paddle lesson. If you would like to try your hand at learning stand up paddle and in the process become a “Paddle Jedi!” of sorts then check out www.standuppaddletobago.com

Smiling with Stand Up Paddle Tobago

Having fun on a Stand Up Paddle Lesson on Pigeon Point!

It seems that whenever we have a stand up paddle lesson on Pigeon Point, everyone is always smiling after (and during – lol)! The key is that we make sure it’s fun. That and we spend about 15 to 20 minutes on land going through the skills necessary to really learn the skills needed to properly stand up paddle.

Mother and Daughter learn to Stand Up Paddle

Here are a few pictures from our last stand up paddle lesson. It’s been a while since we had such a great mother daughter team learn to paddle. Here are Kathleen’s words on Tripadvisor about their lesson.

5 of 5 starsReviewed March 16, 2015 

I am terrified of water but joined my 9yr old daughter for this wonderful experience! Duane was professional, patient & was able to ease me out of my paralyzing fear. Our private lesson was very reasonably priced & excellent value. And the experience was lifelong memory to share w my daughter. I highly recommend Duane & his staff.

Bring the family, and come and have an unforgettable experience learning to stand up paddle. Check out our website at www.standuppaddletobago.com or book a lesson now by clicking here.

What do Skiing and Stand Up Paddle have in Common

Last month we had a really cool couple from the UK who teaches skiing at an indoor rink in the evenings. They were surprised that stand up paddle had so many similarities in how they teach skiing. Of course this was a bit warmer than ski classes. Just another beautiful day in Tobago on the water.

Fun together!

New Years Resolution – Stand Up Paddle!

It’s almost two weeks into 2015. Whats on your new years resolution list? Here are a few ideas for a first time stand up paddler and for a seasoned paddler.

Learning to Stand Up Paddle

Learning to Stand Up Paddle

1) Learn to stand up paddle. Your scared of water, only super fit, surfer dudes can do it, I have no balance – ignore the naysayers. Anyone can learn to stand up paddle. Most people can pick it up in just one lesson, and those who don’t, always get it soon after. Stand Up Paddle opens up the possibility of new adventures, fitness opportunities, great stress relief, and in the end its just lots of fun!

Stand Up Paddle Racing

2) So you have mastered basic stand up paddling, why not learn to stand up paddle surf, or stand up paddle race. Try a Paddlefit class and get in shape in a new fun way. There are so many different ways to have fun with a stand up paddle in the ocean. It’s also a great way to get in shape for Carnival if you are so inclined. I know I am!

Stand Up Paddle Adventure

3) Go on an adventure such as a bioluminescence tour, or a full day adventure up the coast to explore a new place. You might find something special like a waterfall or run into some dolphins. I guarantee you will make a cherished memory that will stay with you for the rest of the year.

4) It’s a great way to have fun with your friends, family or someone special. Any activity done with friends is better. More laughs, more stories, more memories, more things to chat about!

These are just a few ideas but you could learn to surf, mountain bike, kite surf, horseback ride, scuba dive, etc. The list is endless and can all be learned in Tobago. If you want to make the term “Stand Up Paddler” part of your resume this year then check us out at www.standuppaddletobago.com
