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

Sup The Gate 1

Paddling under the Golden Gate Bridge should be on every paddler's bucket list. You never forget your first time paddling under this iconic structure that towers above you and only enhances the spectacular views of San Francisco and the Marin Headlands.

Join 101 Surf Sports as we 'SUP The Gate'. We'll ride the ebb current out towards Point Bonita lighthouse, taking our time to enjoy this adventure. How far we get will depend on the group and the prevailing weather and sea conditions. It is possible that we will go all the way to Rodeo Beach and back if conditions are perfect. We will return with the flood tide, with the wind at our backs. Be prepared to ride a few bumps!

We want everyone to enjoy themselves so this is a tour for experienced SUP paddlers only. We may paddle up to 10 miles. If you have any doubt about your ability please call us to discuss: 415-524-8492 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
