DARIEN, Conn. – In keeping with the tranquil, natural surroundings of Holly Pond, the Darien YMCA is offering introductory paddleboard courses.

Registration has begun for the one-hour introductory course, which will be offered during the weeks of July 7, 14 and 21. The course will cover paddle techniques, safety and more to give participants a great foundation for their stand up paddleboarding excursions.

Paddlers must be at least 15 to participate in a fitness class, with the signature of a parent or guardian. All 11 Stand Up Paddleboards instructors at the Darien Y are PaddleFit Core certified. The Y’s paddleboards are Yoga Blue 2016 boards, made by BOGA Paddle & Surf Co. The Yoga Blue board is a combination fitness and yoga paddleboard, which provides a smooth ride on the water that is fast enough to keep up with the class yet sturdy enough to hold participants of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
