Check details on the Academy’s tours, yoga, and rentals programs. They also offer SUP ‘n’ Sip Wednesdays in partnership with Northwinds Brewhouse & Eatery. This is an ideal opportunity to come out and paddle with a group and make some new SUP buds. Congregate at the rental dock at Cranberry Marina at 6:30 and choose a 1.5 hour leisurely paddle based on the conditions of the day. (Check schedule in advance). Afterwards comes the sipping part at nearby Northwinds, where you can enjoy a refreshing locally produced pint with your SUP community after a relaxing evening on the water.
