The Waves are Back! Paddle Boards Anyone?

Well the holidays are over and it’s time to get serious, about surfing.  Next week marks the first swell of the year and it’s looking like a nice one.

Recently the Surf Shak has teamed up with SUP Girls Paddle Boards and we are offering Stand Up Paddle Boards classes for beginners and intermediate.  We recently purchased two very pretty Paddle Boards and they are very nice.  After the beginner class in Rio Canoa you can then practice your skills in the surf.  Stop by the Shak for more details.
