101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

group paddles

It’s time to get our morning group paddles back on the water. These free group sessions are perfect for anyone who wants to start getting fit by way of paddling or just likes to get on the water early.

Paddlers of all abilities are welcome. If you are saying to yourself "I totally suck and these guys will just blow me away". You "totally suck" because you don't paddle with us. Get yourself in gear and get down here and you will no longer "totally suck" and that's a money back guarantee. In full disclosure these group paddles are free. If you are already pretty good then come on down and we will crush your spirit with display of paddle power that will leave you crying uncle. All this happens with a smile on your face.

You also do not need to hang with the crew, but be fair warned we do like to use you for buoy practice. If you just want to launch early, we can make that happen. We paddle off the dock promptly at 7:30am so be ready to go before then.

The paddles are for both men and women, prone and SUP, 12'6 or 14 foot it doesn't matter just bring it whatever it is. Inflatables? YES! We’ll even help you pump up with our electric inflation station system.

If you want a board rental it is available for $30+tax flat fee (and its the good stuff) and you can paddle as long as you want. Please RSVP to 415-524-8492 if you need any rental gear. No RSVP Needed if you have your own gear.

Here's how it works.

On Sunday mornings we meet at the shop at 101 Westpoint Harbor Drive located inside the Westpoint Yacht Harbor. We arrive by 7:00 am and hit the water promptly at 7:30. As long as you keep hold of all of your personal items you can leave whenever you want.

On Tuesday morning’s we paddle from the San Rafael store located at 115 3rd St. We arrive by 7:00 am and hit the water promptly at 7:30. As long as you keep hold of all of your personal items you can leave whenever you want.

There is no RSVP required. If the event is listed on the 101 Surf Sports Calendar the day before then it’s on. YOU NEED TO CHECK THE CALENDAR THE DAY BEFORE to make sure no cancellation has occurred.

We try to paddle every Sunday morning through September but sometimes a sick kid or a windstorm will shut us down. We also post to facebook if that is easier to follow.

You can always call 415-524-8492 with any questions or to reserve rental gear. And by the way we have the good stuff. Starboard All Star’s, SIC RS 14 and 12’6, Jimmy Lewis sidewinders and more. Demo a Werner Apex, Quickblade V-drive, Trifecta and more.

This group will inspire you paddle harder. You will get better. You will get to see firsthand how some of the area’s top paddlers got to where they are in a fun inclusive practice session. The focus is on a fun workout with friends. See you on the water.
