I live in Woodbridge, VA, and I teach paddlesports camps and classes at Lake Ridge Park and Marina through Prince William County Parks and Recreation. I am also available for private instruction for both kayak and stand up paddle board (SUP), including kayak rolling.
I lead several paddling Meetup Groups, including Lake Ridge Park Paddlers which has over 700 members. This group includes kayaks, SUPs, and canoes and we are very beginner and family friendly. The rental rates at Lake Ridge Park are the lowest in greater DC area. The link for Lake Ridge Park Paddlers is listed below.
More information on Meetup Groups and other paddling groups is listed in the "Links" section.
For information on SUP classes for adults, and paddling camps for kids, check out the Prince William Parks and Recreation web site.
