My friends and I (6 of us - 5 adults, one child) went to Kayak Amelia for SUP 101 (stand-up paddleboard) class. I had been once before, also at KA, but signed up so I could go with my friends who were all first-timers. We were given a quick lesson on paddles and our boards on land and then went right into the water behind the shop to try our skills out. Once on our boards, our instructor showed us some fun moves and encouraged us to try. And, this is an excuse to fall in and get wet. After familiarizing ourselves with our boards we were able to paddle up the creek a ways - you can see Kingsley Plantation - and then head back. It was about 2 hours in all and that is plenty. It's a great workout and you're more tired than you realize at the end.
We brought a picnic and ate at KA in their pavilion. Everyone here is very friendly and they take the time to make sure that you know what you're doing and that you are comfortable before they proceed. SUP is for everyone - all it takes is a little balance, and if not, you get wet - it's not a bad thing because you work up a sweat. But it is GREAT exercise. We'd like to come back and try the SUP yoga class next.
