DEVELOP SURF, SUP AND LONGBOARD SKATEBOARD SKILLS FALL 2016 - SPRING 2017

Instructional sessions are designed to serve beginner to advanced skill levels. If you have limited time, sign up for a Lester River Boardsport Sampler or try a Kite Introduction Session then deduct the fee from an annual pass if you're hooked. Choose the Annual Surf/SUP Pass or Snow Kiting Pass for $45 if you are a UMD Student and $115 for Others to achieve full access! Memberships are limited to the first 40 students and 10 nonstudents registered. Surf/SUP and Snow Kiting Pass holders will be able to attend all of the scheduled programs during the school year at no additional cost. Most importantly you will receive e-mail invitations to roughly ten additional sessions whenever the conditions are favorable. E-mail invitations are offered at two different skill levels. We travel to a wide variety of locations to encourage skill development for all. Longboard Land Paddling outings will also occur in 2016-2017 for all Surf/SUP Pass holders. Most of the longboard surf and standup paddle board outings occur from late September through early November, then the kite action heats up in December and runs through March. Surfing resumes in April and early May.

SURFING BASED STRENGTH & CONDITIONING - POOL SESSIONS

Learn about paddling technique, awareness of board trim, turning skills, ducking waves, how to pop up into a stance and balance. Strength and endurance will be developed through interval training on and off the surfboards with basic submerged hypoxic training to help you improve your comfort under water. We will utilize stand up paddle boards to broaden your board skills. This is also a great chance to meet others interested in surfing, learn about equipment, and how to get equipment. Pass holders will have access to the April 22-23 Kayak & SUP Spring Rendezvous Trip.
