If you enjoy SUP paddling, try a one-way guided trip on the Fox River. Our SUP trips start in Waterford at Fox River Paddle Sports and end in Rochester. This isn’t a class, but your guide is an ACA-certified stand-up paddling instructor and can give you some helpful pointers during the trip. The cost is just $55 per person and includes your board, paddle, leash, and life jacket. You can register by calling 262-895-2008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stop in during one of the six Wednesday evenings this summer when Sherri will offer a series of relaxed “Paddling Conversations” on a variety of topics relating to the sports of canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboard. Gather around the picnic table at Fox River Paddle Sports or bring your own lawn chair. Sherri will give an informal presentation before opening the discussion with the audience. Although there is a designated topic for each of the six gatherings, feel free to come on by to ask questions about any paddling topic. All “Conversations” begin at 5:30pm and generally last until about 7pm. These events are free to the public and do not require advance registration.
