What is a Paddleboard?
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the fastest growing watersports in existence and is a unique combination of fitness and meditation that lets you work out and enjoy the peace and atmosphere of being on the water all at once. From workouts that tax and push the limits to a peaceful moonlight paddle, to yoga out on the open water, Stand Up Paddling is gaining ground everywhere and Sausalito has one of the most active and enthusiastic communities of paddlers!
Paddleboard Rentals – Teaching You the Basics
Stand Up Paddleboards can be rented in Sausalito from the same outfitters that have been renting kayaks and other water sporting goods to residents and visitors for years. These rentals are available with classes to get you situated and comfortable with this decidedly different style of motion and the instructors will have you up and ready for your own outings in no time.
Instruction from Sea Trek and Bluerush Boardsports, both rental outfitters for paddleboards and water sports equipment in Sausalito, generally last for two hours and cover getting you settled with balance and motion, and a short paddle along the clam waterfront with your instructor to help refine your technique and get you ready to head out. Rentals of the boards themselves are priced similarly to kayak rentals and both Sea Trek and Bluerush offer bulk discounts for blocks of time purchased in advance.
Yoga on Paddleboards
One of the most popular and unique uses of paddleboards in Sausalito is yoga sessions and classes on the water on the Stand Up Paddleboards themselves! Yoga classes are held out on the calm waters of Richardson Bay (a part of the San Francisco Bay) and are an invigorating and unique venue for your yoga experience. Onboard Fitness and Bluerush provide 75 minute classes that will take you out on the water for a truly relaxing and different set of yoga poses. The Stand Up Paddleboards themselves are very stable and once you get used to the idea that you are not on solid ground while doing your workout, it’s no problem at all!
