Paddleboarding in Paradise

paddleboarding-in-paradiseYou’ve probably seen them glide by along the shore while at the beach, standing on a surfboard and propelling forward using a paddle, and thought to yourself, “That looks like fun. I’d love to try it.” Well SurfIt USA wants to teach you how, and offers a variety of ways to get going, including exciting trips to some truly incredible locales such as Alaska, Hawaii, and new this year, Costa Rica.

Operating in Sarasota for the past three years, husband and wife owners, Aaron Pollard and Karla Gore, have been paddling and travelling for over 10 years. Not only does SurfIt USA offer classes in both Stand Up Paddleboarding and Stand Up Paddleboarding Yoga, they also offer teaching certification classes for both. SurfIt USA also trains those looking to learn traditional surfing and also kayaking, and hosts camps for children and teens during the summer.

Standup Paddleboarding classes and tours take place daily, generally one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Their website calendar provides all necessary details and prices for classes and rentals, as well as information about the yearly trips to, as Karla says, “Some of the most beautiful places in the world.” Private tours and training can also be scheduled on an individualized basis.
