We will gear up on the beach and go over paddling technique, proper board handling and launching with a review safety and weather considerations. Upon launching our boards onto Lake Tahoe, we will spend some time getting acquainted with how the board handles in a kneeling position, focusing on body alignment, trim and turning the board. When you are comfortable and ready, we will standup. In addition to stand up paddling, we will go over falling in the water and getting back onto your board. Additionally, we will practice rescue paddling techniques such as knee and prone paddling. My goal is for everyone in the group to feel comfortable on the board and in the water. We will continue to work on developing our stroke as we tour areas of North Tahoe. The pace of this activity is casual and the attention is on smiles and good times! I have many special games and activities that your kids will love. We have been known to play red light, green light on paddlboards, jump over pool noodles, and run across boards lined up next to each other. Your kids will have a blast!

I am an experienced physical education teacher of 27 years. I have been involved with Stand Up Paddleboarding on Lake Tahoe since 2008. I am a certified Paddlefit instructor, as well as, a proficient and accomplished SUP racer. I have provided quality instruction to numerous adults and children and I specialize in family activities. I paddle on Lake Tahoe throughout the year and especially enjoy surfing when the weather permits. I am available to facilitate paddleboard birthday parties, group events, family lessons, excursions and tours.
Her skal du være
We will be paddling along the majestic shores of North Tahoe as we enjoy the calm clear water, breathe the fresh mountain air, and soak up the warm rays of the sun. We can tour many of the pristine undeveloped East Shore beaches around Tahoe that are NOT easily accessed on foot. I will also bring along snorkeling equipment for participants to enjoy as they dive down and experience the crystal clear water and the many species of marine life.

Michael knew what he was doing! He was prepared for is and ready to go. The location he selected was lovely, and after the lesson, we stayed several hours longer. Oh- and most importantly — our whole family was able to get up and stay up on the board. We paddled around the whole time. It was really fun!

Great SUP experience for first-timers. Michael is so nice and knows a lot to make sure it would be a enjoyable experience for everyone. -About the SUP experience- I joined Michael's SUP session with two other friends. All of us are first time paddlers and my two friends, even though they can swim, are afraid of lake water at the beginning. Michael absolutely respected our different learning speed and two of us were able to stand up on the board to paddle in the end of the session. The spot Michael picked is a small hidden beach that not many people go to, so we had big open area to learn, fall and play around. -About Michael- Michael is so so so nice to us. We drove from South Lake Tahoe and got stuck in the traffic on HW28. (Heads-up: the drive from south lake tahoe to kings beach can be more than 1.5 hours on a busy weekend!!) We got to the beach more than 30 minutes late, and Michael still let us play on water longer for the entire two hours. He also knows exactly how to teach. His instruction was concise and helpful for new paddlers to get confident on water by themselves. Michael is also very encouraging to keep the students' spirit up during the paddling experience. I would definitely recommend him to my other friends who are interested in SUP in Tahoe. It was a great experience for my friends and me. Thank you so much Michael!!

Michael did a great job teaching our son how to paddle board and made him feel so comfortable in the water. We went as a family and although my husband and I have paddle boarded a dozen or so times, we definitely benefitted from the lesson and were able refine our technique. Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely do it again!

Michael is an awesome teacher and very personable guy! My partner and I felt very welcomed and Michael introduced us to the other group of four who we'd be participating with. Michael got to know each of us and immediately dove into the basics of Paddleboarding and what to expect before we got into the water. He is very thorough and none of us had any outstanding questions after his explanation. We were offered Wetsuits, however, it was a beautiful day out and we felt that swimsuits were just fine. He also offered to lock any of our valuables in his truck before heading to the water. Michael gave us each a board and paddle, we walked to the beach (about 30ft from his truck where we met) and he explained how to launch the board and mount it. Once we mounted the board we sat in shallow water and went over some other basics to standing up and paddling. Overall we REALLY enjoyed the experience, we felt that Michael equipped us with the proper knowledge needed to get us comfortable on the board and what to do in various situations. We had a blast paddling around for 2 hours and Michael even demonstrated some advanced techniques and showed us some paddleboard surfing! (He's really good at it!) After this experience, my partner and I were so excited that the very next day we rented paddleboards from "Adrift Tahoe" (per Michael's recommendation) and enjoyed a 4 mile round trip from Kings Beach to the point around Crystal Bay. If that doesn't tell you how great a teach Michael is, then I don't know what does! We are truly happy to have had this experience and would recommend it to people of all ages. Happy Paddling!
