Summer is the time for new experiences. If you are looking to get your feet wet (put intended), stand up paddle boarding is the way to go. Capital SUP is located in Annapolis, is a great company that has wonderful staff, and a nice venue for enjoying time on the water. If you have never SUP’ed (stand up paddle board) before, they offer lessons. I chose to forego the lesson and just figured out the balance on my own. They provide you with the board the paddle and a life jacket. However, even though I didn’t sign up for lessons, the staffer on the dock gave me a few basic tips to make sure that I did okay. In the end, I only fell in the water 3 times (not bad for a first timer). The feeling of floating on the water without being in a boat is a as close to surfing as you can get without being in waves. This was a very cool experience.
In addition to hourly rentals and lessons, they also offer guided tours, LED night tours, race training, special events (such as Full Moon LED lit Sup Yoga), day time SUP Yoga, and more. I went with my son (8 years old at the time) and he and I had a blast. Make sure to bring lots of sunscreen as it gets hot on the water.
