Stand Up Paddle Lesson On The Potomac River

If you’re looking to learn how to stand up paddle in the Washington, DC area, Paddlestroke SUP is the best choice for stand up paddle lessons.

We provide you with top-quality, enthusiastic, supportive instruction from experienced professional stand up paddlers. Your first lesson will be in a safe, calm-water environment where you’ll learn the basics—from how to use your equipment, to balance and paddling technique, to what to do in case of an emergency. You’ll have the benefit of starting out right and getting a solid understanding of the fundamentals.

Whether you decide to stand up paddle once or make it a life-long interest, you’ll have a GREAT time! And if you ever want to progress further, we can teach you everything from how to surf waves right at home on the Potomac River to how to paddle fast and win races. We love what we do and we love sharing the sport of stand up paddling with others!

Safe and Supportive Instruction

Stand up paddle boarding is a relatively safe sport, but it’s important to get started with the right instruction and learn from a safety-conscious, experienced guide and teacher. Greg Miller was one of the first Level 3 River SUP Certified Instructors in the world certified by the American Canoe Association. He has also started and developed some of the other top stand up paddle programs in the Washington, DC area. If you book your first stand up paddle lesson, make sure to do it with someone who has a lot of experience and can give you the best time possible.
