When it's warm, we're mostly on the lake renting boards, giving lessons, and sharing our standup paddleboarding stoke on Lake Murray.

We are on the Irmo side of the Lake Murray Dam Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights from 5 - 8 by appointment. On Friday evenings (5 - 8) and Saturdays (12 - 6), we are at Dreher Island State Park. During the Summer, we will be at the dam from 7 - 9 a.m. (M - F)... doing paddle fitness workouts, and then will stay there doing Summer camps for kids from 9 - 12 noon (M - Th). Sunday is fun day for special events and parties. Keep posted for word on that!

See facebook listings for update on where we will be. Call, text, or message on facebook to schedule a reservation.

In case you have never paddleboarded, you have no reason to fear. Steve is a longtime paddler and surfer and is very patient. He will give you all the instruction you need. If it is balance you are concerned about, fear not as well. SUPs are much more stable than you might think. There are normal epoxy SUPs as well as some Big Boy boards for larger paddlers. Standup paddleboarding is the easiest watersport you will ever do. In 5 minutes, you will be paddling like you have done it all your life. In three summers, there has NEVER BEEN A PERSON WHO COULD NOT DO IT. Each summer, we teach about 300 people to paddleboard and not a single one has been unsuccessful!
