Thanks for looking me up. My name is Jonathan Grahl and my passion is Stand-Up-Paddle boarding. I have been paddling, surfing, swimming and sailing in Newport Harbor with my dad before my first memories were fully formed. I am happy to share my experience with you. Stand-Up paddling is easy, great exercise and most of all “Fun”!

My rates are:
$40.00 for individual lessons
$35.00 per person for groups of 2 or 3
Family rates by quote
$50.00 for dogs (1/2 hour first lesson)
Dog protocols will be discussed at booking of lesson *
* Not all dog breeds qualify

The first lesson will be about one hour. I am happy to do additional coaching beyond that. My school schedule limits my time so all lessons must be booked in advance.

  • Paddling technique (holding/using the paddle correctly)
  • Balance points on the board
  • Board and paddle terminology.
  • Awareness of weather, wind and tide conditions and how they affect paddling successfully
  • Equipment choices and recommendations.
  • Water safety.
  • Boating protocols and dealing with wakes.
  • Turning techniques.
    I will supply a board and paddle for your first lesson.
