A quick trip to the beach, whether along the bay or the ocean, will provide you with plenty of options for fun things to do in San Diego. Recently, one of the most popular water sports in the region has been stand up paddleboarding.
Surf Diva Surf School features one-and-a-half hour stand up paddleboarding lessons that are perfect for beginners who have never set foot on a surfboard or paddleboard before, or someone who maybe hasn’t done so since last summer and could use a refresher course. During the course you will learn how to stand up, balance, and maneuver your board across the water as you enjoy panoramic views of the coastline and the Pacific Ocean. Stand up paddleboarding has significantly grown in popularity over the past few years because it is a great way to get some exercise, get in touch with nature, and enjoy the wonderful weather and sights of Southern California. If you are looking for things to do in San Diego this weekend, consider learning how to stand up paddleboard.
Lessons start as low as $79.99 and include rental of the paddleboard and rash guard as well as an SUP diploma and a 20% VIP discount at the surf shop should you decide to make any purchases necessary to pursue your new hobby. Lessons start at 9:00 AM at La Jolla Shores, but you will need to show up 30 minutes ahead of time to check in. It’s recommended that you bring things you would normally need at the beach: a swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen, a sweatshirt, hair ties, a snack, etc. You may want to consider bringing some extra money to rent a wetsuit if you might be bothered by chilly water depending on the time of year. La Jolla Shores is an excellent spot to learn because it is mostly protected from big waves and you have the chance to see harmless leopard sharks, stingrays, and possibly seals, sea lions, and dolphins who are drawn to the calm waters. Exploring the coast on paddleboard and seeing the marine life around La Jolla is one certainly one of the best things to do in San Diego.
Funseekers can enjoy a morning out on the waters off of La Jolla while getting some exercise and learning a new skill. Meanwhile, Funbassadors can make an appointment for a lesson, or if they have the equipment and the know-how, they can provide their own stand up paddleboarding lessons and even bring along some snacks and refreshments for after the lesson is done.
