Bayou City Outdoors & REI Present: SUP 101 – Stand Up & Paddle!
REI Westheimer 7538 Westheimer Rd; Houston, TX 77063
7:00 to 8:30PM

‘Sup, y’all? It is the hottest new sport that will cool you down in the blistering Houston summers. With miles of bayous, plenty of lakes and the almost flat surf of Galveston in the summer, we have an unlimited playground to try Stand Up Paddle boarding. Anyone can do this sport. It is low impact, uses practically every muscle in your body, is great for cross-training and is a ton of fun! While you work on your balance, you’ll work on your core. Plus, you can saunter along the bayous or paddle fast and turn it into an BIG aerobic workout.

Tonight we will talk about:
• How to choose a board and a paddle
• Where to paddle
• Common terminology
• Safety
• Strokes
• Cross Training, stretching & posture

Come join Bayou City Outdoors and R.E.I. as we explore all aspects of SUPing in and around Houston – we’ll have you up in no time at all!
7:00 to 8:30PM REI  7538 Westheimer Rd; Houston, TX 77063
