InZANE Stand Up Paddle Clinics

For the past number of years we have provided a SUP Clinic the day before our big SUP Cup event in August.

In the past we have had Dave Kalama, and then Dave Kalama and Jim Terrell for a couple years.

This year we brought in world class paddler and Starboard Dream Team rider – Zane Schweitzer.

Not only did Zane put on a clinic for paddlers on Friday morning, he also put on a Free Kids Clinic in the afternoon.  

As an added bonus, one lucky participant of the morning clinic was chosen and then Zane paddled with, and coached that person the next day during the SUP Cup River race!

Thanks to Zane for making the trek over to paddle with us, and to Starboard for helping to make it all happen.
