Jay's or Kapowui for Venice Beach.
What is your recommendation for lessons? How hard is paddle boarding? Boys are 24 and in good shape-Edited: 2:14 pm, July 05, 2016
Both of those places look great. Do you recommend lessons? How hard is paddle boarding? Boys are 24, good swimmers, and in good physical condition-
They should be fine.
On the other hand, the water is calmer in Marina del Rey (it's an inland waterway rather than the ocean). Your sons can always start in the Marina and paddle out into the ocean.
I just spoke to Jay's and the rep said that beginner lessons are usually offered in Marina del Rey even though Jay's is located in Venice.
Beginners means going to the Marina del Rey place I linked. Don't try learning elsewhere.
Stand up paddle boarding requires the ability to stand up and not much more. Getting on the board is the hardest thing to learn.
If there are any waves at all at Venice Beach, learn in the marina.
