The safety of our community has always been our top priority, as leaders in the stand up paddle community we take safety seriously.  

While we are following the local area regulations, in some areas our policies may be more than the local requirements as dictated by our partner's locations

( Ie: Pools and Private Property) 

Please note these rules are enforced regardless if you have been vaccinated. 

Inappropriate behavior towards our team or partners will not be tolerated.
