SUP Camps on South Padre Island are most enjoyable for water goers of any level. Novice to Pro our instructors will teach and guide you through the safest waterways of SPI. Enjoy a bay side tour of South Padre Island’s downtown district of bars (South) or the beautiful channels of the bay front properties of The Shores development (North).
SUP camps are also available for advanced riders on the ocean side. We do encourage these riders to have had some SUP time and availability before riding the waves. If the ocean is “flat” we are certainly willing to take novice riders on a tour of our beautiful beach jetty.
