Charleston Paddleboard Lessons

Much of Charleston's low country landscape is only accessible by paddleboard, and this 1-hour Folly Beach paddleboard lesson will help you explore the river or waves of Charleston's most popular island. Depending upon your experience level, you can either paddle calm waters of the river behind the island, or try your hand at surfing the waves that crash on the sandy coast. Throughout the lesson the professional instructors will not only teach you to paddleboard, but also offer inside an inside look at life as a Charleston local.
