Course Outline

You mount the board in the kneeling position and then stand up. To get into the kneeling position on the paddleboard:

  • Put the board in shallow, flat water. Make sure the water is deep enough that the fin(s) will not hit the bottom.
  • Place the paddle across the deck of the board.
  • Hold onto the board’s rails while also holding the paddle with one hand.
  • Climb onto the board and kneel just behind the board’s hand well.
  • Paddle on your knees until you are comfortable on the board and are away from the shoreline or rocks.
