Downwind Stand Up Paddleboarding on  San Francisco Bay

We are stoked to be offering a full calendar of downwind stand up paddleboarding on San Francisco Bay this summer but space is limited so get signed up today.

Once again we have partnered with The Barbary Ghost Stand Up Paddleboard Boat captained by Drew Testwuide. We offer the only complete calendar of boat supported downwind action on the bay.

First up is 3 downwind clinics with your instructor David Wells of 101 Surf Sports. You will receive in depth on land instruction followed by some on the water downwinding. You can rent the best downwind boards on the planet courtesy SIC Maui - the premiere brand in the downwind paddleboard category.Dates 6/20, 7/19, 8/15

Already got your game on? Well then consider these two options. First is the regularly scheduled Wednesday Evening downwinders. The perfect way to unwind after days work is most definitely connecting some bumps.  Dates: 6/8, 6/22, 7/6, 7/20, 8/3, 8/17, 8/31

So you can't make Wednesdays? Welll then take a long hard look at the SUP Safari option. Running on Sunday's and an occasional Saturday you can get your weekend downwind fix. Dates:  6/4, 6/18, 7/3, 7/16, 7/30, 8/13, 8/28, 9/3

The bulk of our downwinding tours will leave and return to the Emeryville Marina. This allows us quick access to some of the best bumps on San Francisco Bay. Give Captain Drew a call at 415-754-0205 with any questions. You can book online using the link below. We only have 5 spots per trip/clinic.
