Weekly Group SUP Paddle @ Portland Paddle
Aug 22 @ 7:00 am
Weekly Group SUP Paddle @ Portland Paddle

We’re bringing back our weekly SUP paddles for our 2019 season! Starting on June 6 our staff will lead an early morning paddle from our site at the East End Beach every Thursday. It’s free to join with your own board or just $15 to rent one from us ($10 off the usual rate).

This weekly gathering is a casual paddle open to anyone with some SUP experience who feels comfortable and confident on a board. This isn’t a guided trip, so everyone is responsible for their own safety and it’s not a good fit for total novices. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.

A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Meetup page and on Facebook.

The fun-filled event takes place on Sunday, September 8th from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the East End Beach. Participants can choose between a 9.75-mile competitive course, a shorter 4.75 non-competitive course and a .75 miles kid’s course. Both sea kayakers and paddleboarders are invited to participate.

Registration is now open at easternpromenade.org. The participant fee is $30 for early registration before July 25 or $40 after that date. Portland Paddle will be renting SUP’s and kayaks for an additional fee, with 100% of proceeds directed to FoEP.
