Take an Oak Hollow paddleboarding lesson
Join us for an intro SUP lesson and tour on nearby Oak Hollows Lake. This basic session provides coaching for you to learn the basics or polish your skills while enjoying the lake scenery. This basic PaddleFit class teaches new SUP techniques to beginners and people with some experience.
The lesson begins with an orientation of the SUP equipment that we use during our tranquil, therapeutic SUP gliding excursion. Your Triad ECO Adventures SUP instructor demonstrates the proper height range and use of your paddle, proper stance, balance, posture on your board, and proper respect for the water. You also learn differences in fin setups, types of preferred flotation devices, differences in paddles, and various board types. We might even test the board’s stability by attempting a headstand!
Upon departure, we SUP through some calm lake waters, around a bend, and even below a tall, abandoned train trestle into a neighborhood of Belews Lake that even many locals have not explored. Expect scenic landscapes, a peek at wildlife and lots of shared laughs as we develop your core strength.
Your safety, comfort, and enjoyment are always our number one priority at Triad ECO Adventures. Group discounts for this basic PaddleFit formatted instruction are also readily available, including our ability to launch and coach in your own lake! Learn about crediting a large portion of your class fee toward a new board purchase (excluding sale/clearance) from our nearby boutique SUP warehouse, always open by appointment (or by chance)! Start local, stay local. Glide on with Triad ECO Adventures!
Gratuities are not included but are greatly appreciated by our SUP instructors if you enjoyed your lesson.
- Meeting Location
Oak Hollow Lake: We are located at the Oak Hollow Marina at 3431 N Centennial St, High Point, NC 27265. This High Point venue requires a $4 launch fee to first be paid at their office, where rest/change-rooms are also located (or you can buy a season’s pass).
- Important Information
Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in and sign your waiver. We can’t wait for late arrivals. Wear comfortable clothing you don’t mind getting wet (recommend a bathing suit underneath, as we will be in and upon the water). You should also bring a towel and a change of clothes, just in case. But keep in mind there likely is not a place to change, so it’s best to come dressed in what you plan to wear.
