What to Wear
Consider water and air temp as well as wind. Bathing suits that are designed for movement and coverage work well for SUP.
Leave the cotton for later It’s not the best UV protectant and it will keep you cold in the Spring and Fall.
Polypro, nylon or synthetic fleece will keep you warmer when the air/water is cool.

Please avoid wearing black, brown or dark colors as they inhibit a joyful atmosphere.
Make sure you are well hydrated before class. There is a lovely bathroom for you to use before we head out. It's also a great change room. Go up the white stairs and peek at the studio while you're there.
Are we still going?
What to Bring
water or a means of hydration and a way to attach it to the board or carry it on you (eg. Camelbak)
long-sleeved shirt or waterproof sunblock (no oil spray type please...not a good combo with a SUP)
Sunglasses with a secure strap
a hat should you plan to paddle in full sun after class
towel and a change of clothes for later
and of course your smile :D
if you have not prepaid, bring cash or check ("One Joyful Yoga")
Bring your gift certificate or voucher.
We use The Weather Channel to check weather.
Arriving at Waconda Bay
You may park in the drive or on the street. We do attempt to accommodate those that bring their own boards (BYOBoards) by keeping the driveway clear for unloading. We'll let you know the day of : )
Kindly please, walk down the driveway towards the water. You will find us registering at the carport.
Before each class/trip,
please be sure you:
go to the bathroom
take a paddle with you
then head down to the dock where your boards will be waiting for you.
Check for safety
life jacket ?
board leash and whistle for distance paddling
We register students/clients 15 mins. prior to class start time. We leave the dock promptly and will be unable to assist you should you arrive late. You risk forfeiture of your class payment and besides it’s just no fun being left behind so PLAN to get here early and soak up the beauty of peaceful Waconda Bay.
