Outdoor Connection is orientation clinics from 11:45 am - 2:45pm at the Pettibone Lagoon. Ticket price includes transportation. We'll have a shuttle running from the REC to Pettibone Park. Leaving 15 minuets before each class time.
The orientation clinic is perfect for those curious about trying paddleboarding for the first time. Those attending will receive a brief introduction about the sport and have an opportunity to paddle a paddleboard in the lagoon. Space is limited.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding, known as SUP, is a variation of surfing where riders stand on a long surfboard and use an extra long paddle to propel through the water. The main difference between surfing and paddleboarding is riders don’t need waves to use the paddleboard — they can paddle on the open ocean, in harbors, on lakes, rivers or any large body of water.
