When you live on the Rockaway Peninsula at Arverne By The Sea, the options for outdoor recreation are nearly endless. Just when you thought you had tried it all, a newcomer has offered a fantastic new way to enjoy family time, stay in shape, and make the most of life on the water. We are talking about A-Team Paddleboarding of course, where the aim is to provide you with a safe, fun, and easy experience every time you pick up a paddle. With private lessons, group lessons, and race training, as well as available board rental by the hour or day, this is everything you need for your first, or fiftieth, stand up paddle experience.
Stand Up Paddle Lessons
Have you ever wanted to stand on water? Now you can in Rockaway where the WPA certified and RIVIERA & KIALOA team rider instructors from A-Team teach everyone from total beginners to race-ready participants the finer points of SUP. It is easy to sign up, and excursions leave daily from Rockaway and include transportation to a calm spot at the public National Parks Service launch site, nearby the Breezy Point Yacht Club.
Participants learn how to hold the paddle, how to maneuver the board in the water, and the basics of balancing on the board. Dogs are even welcome to join, though at your own risk of capsizing! Nearly everyone who tries SUP is able to stand up on their first time out, making this is a family-friendly activity that everyone can truly enjoy at their own pace.
Stand Up Paddle Yoga
Are you ready for the next level of balance and center? Challenge yourself to a yoga and Pilates session on the stand up paddleboard, while taking in majestic local nature. Participants not only learn to improve their SUP technique, but strengthen the core while perfecting balance. Pre-registration is required, and spaces are limited. Class passes are available as single sessions, or in a six-class pack. Contact A-Team directly to sign up for a yoga session!
Stand Up Paddle Kids’ Camp
Children ages 6+ of all skill levels are welcome to join a SUP kids’ camp, held in the calm, shallow waters of Jamaica Bay. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about water safety, while improving their technique on the board, mastering various strokes, and learning the art of turning. All necessary gear and safety equipment is included, as are plenty of fun beach activities and water games.
When you head out for a SUP session with A-Team Paddleboarding, all instructors are CPR and First Aid certified. To join the fun and courteous staff and instructors on a safe experience you will love to share with family and friends, head out on the water for a lesson or session.
A-Team Paddleboarding is found at 114-04 Beach Channel Drive in Rockaway Park, NY.
