Outdoor Education in Vancouver BC, with Drew Climie

Paddleboarding for 50+

A Paddleboarding Program For 50+ Adults

Paddleboarding for Adults 50+

Looking for a low intensity, easy to learn activity that will get you outside enjoying the ocean?

Learn to paddleboard with like minded adults without the worry of the class catering to younger folks.

Well look no further! Join my Paddleboarding for 50+ adults at Windsure at the Jericho Sailing Centre. Paddleboarding is an excellent activity for those seeking a low-stress cardio workout in an outdoor social environment, all while surrounded by stunning scenery!

The four-week program offers safety skills (falling off safely & remounting, identifying safe conditions to paddle, efficient paddling and towing techniques), paddling skills (mounting a board at a beach or dock, steering control, basic strokes, paddling in tough conditions), and knowledge skills (safety equipment, board and paddle design, proper apparel, risk assessment and management). These learning areas are covered over the course of the four weeks, building upon skills from the previous session. At the end of the program, feel confident in your new paddling skills and come away with new friendships!

The program will run with maximum 7 participants so sign up to secure your spot.

Wondering who is considered an older adult? Well, we don’t want to put a specific age on it, but we envision this program as a cohort-based community experience for those 50+ or ‘better’.
