This trip, DH wants to do some stand-up paddleboarding.
I contacted a couple of companies with some questions and one of them responded that they don't believe lessons are necessary, but would send someone out paddling with you if you wish (for a charge of course).
Question is - are SUP lessons necessary? DH used to surf in his younger years, but that was over 30 years ago - he hasn't been on a board of any kind since then, so he's a bit unsure about doing this without lessons.
Lessons? or not?
