Classes now forming for 2020 Learn to SUP and Sunset SUP summer sessions!

Learn to Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) at BIAC

Come see why Stand Up Paddle Boards are all the rage. They are an easy and fun way to exercise while seeing part of the Bay few get to enjoy. 

What is stand up paddle boarding?

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a full-body workout and a chance to play on the water. Paddle boarders stand at full height on the board, offering a unique vantage point to the San Francisco Bay.


Learn to SUP

This class is geared to those who have never tried a SUP or want tips on how to be successful. We teach proper form, maneuvering and how to navigate the inner harbor/Bair Island.

After completing the class, most participants are capable of safely paddling alone. After your class, you’ll have a one month trial membership at no additional charge to practice your new skills and consider joining BIAC.
