A Typical Day in one of our Intro to River SUP Clinics...
For these clinics, we start the day at a private lake in the Yakima River Canyon, honing your skills on the board as well as teaching you new techniques that you will use specifically on the river. After a quick snack, we'll head upriver and drop into the Yakima to guide and coach you during our river excursion. After 2 miles, we'll pop out of the river for a delicious, gourmet lunch at Canyon River Ranch. After our meal, we'll get back on our boards and make our way 6 miles down river. Along the way, we'll stop for snacks and cold beverages and sightseeing - and a bit of sunning time. We'll end our day where we started - on the grass at the private lake - as we enjoy an outdoor happy hour before heading home.
