Westwind created ‘Stand Up Paddle Fitness’ training
at OCSEC in June 2008 to encourage participation in boating related exercise.
The program was a hit with a great core group of paddlers enjoying the aquatic
environment and fresh sea air.
The concept for Westwind to develop SUP Fitness Training was simple
because of the nature of the sport - balancing on a paddle board with basic
paddling strokes. The combination provides an excellent and FUN core fitness
and aerobic workout. The course is designed to be motivational and non-threatening
while the aquatic environment is a perfect backdrop for exercise.
During our first season, we had a successful partnership with Becker
surfboards. But the demand for paddling extended well beyond the summer
prompting Westwind to purchase our own boards. We now have a fleet of 11’ NSP
soft top epoxy boards which are perfect for training courses and instruction.
Because of the overwhelming response to our program and the incredible
opportunity for access to safe boating, we are expanding and developing
new courses in the exciting sport of Stand Up Paddling. Private and Semi
private SUP lessons are available as well as special programs ranging from
corporate events to birthday parties.
