Join me for a day of SUP Clinics in Port Angeles, WA July 9-10

From the Adventures Through Kayaking website in Port Angeles, WA..

Are you interested in trying something new? Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boarding has become one of the fastest growing watersports, great for fitness lake paddling or adrenaline filled surf paddling. A couple of our nearby favorite areas for Stand Up Paddling include the glaciar blue Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park and the sandy beaches of Crescent Bay near Salt Creek Recreation Area.
Stand Up Paddleboard classes, tours and rentals are available everyday by reservation. In addition, you are invited to join guest instructor/SUP author, Rob Casey for two days of SUP classes from beginner to surf. Scheduled for July 9th and 10th, you can try your hand at this exciting sport. Here is the run down:
Stand Up Paddle Board and Kayak Demo Event- July 9th and 10th

This is a beginner friendly event appropriate for the entire family- stand up classes taught by guest instructor/author Rob Casey. In addition to learning stand up boarding, you will have a plethora of kayaks to demo, including Dagger, Perception, Valley, North Shore and pedal boats by Native Watercraft, SUP demos will be available for Surftech, Jimmy Styks, and Liquid Shredder boards.

Saturday's on-water classes and demos will be followed by a cook out for everyone at Harbinger Winery. Rob will be available to discuss his new book, "Stand Up Paddling- flatwater to surf."
