“kids had a blast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

my kids age 13 and 11 did a camp with Black Dog this summer. they thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructors were so positive, and really taught them a lot in 4 days. They came home each day really looking forward to the next. Black Dog is organized, has good equipment and provides great instructors. It is a great way for those who live in and around Richmond to discover the James River, and for tourists to sampke more of the real Richmond. This is a great sport and a safe and fun way to get exposed to it. try it out!

“Very thorough intro class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I took a SUP class through another company in Richmond several years ago, but we didn’t learn any more than the basics. At Black Dog Paddle, they teach you everything from how to fall, to how to navigate around obstacles. They let you try out several boards and also give you lots of ideas and advice if you ever plan to buy your own board or rent one on vacation.
