Stand Up Paddle Surfing Lessons
Nantucket sUrfari also offers stand up paddle surfing lessons to those wanting to try something new. Learn the basics of the fatest growing watersport in the world. Stand up paddle surfing, also known as beach boy surfing has its modern origins in 1960's Waikiki. The local beach boys would paddle out standing up on big longboards with cameras slung dry around their necks to take photos of tourists learning to surf.
