Learn the basics of Stand-up Paddle Boarding (SUP) or advance your skills with one of our lessons. They can be private. Santa Barbara is home to ideal paddling conditions, for newbies we launch out of the protected Santa Barbara harbor. For more advanced paddlers, we typically launch off Leadbetter Beach, Goleta Beach, or Hendry's Beach depending on the type of lesson and skill level of the paddler. All of our instructors are CPR/First-Aid certified, passionate about paddling, and excited to share their wealth of knowledge with you. Paddle Sports Center co-founder, Fraser Kersey is an ASI Instructor Trainer, teaching instructors and students alike.
