Corporate Team Building

2-4 hours

Our Stand Up Paddle team-building activity is a positive, shared experience that reinforces team skills. The structured course covers SUP safety, techniques, and skills that participants will then use in a series of games and challenges to meet clearly defined goals.

Once armed with paddling skills, corporate teams will participate in friendly relays, object retrieval, and the exciting tandem paddle challenge. image of stand up paddle boarders in Wilmington NC

Using Stand Up Paddling for your next corporate team building event is a great way to get some sun and improve employee relations. It’s not your ordinary “board meeting” (we like puns).

Our team building events can be catered to groups of 4 to 20, and are appropriate for most ages. Note that participants should be comfortable with a moderate activity level for the duration requested. We can run activities to fit your time scale, with our most popular duration ranging from 2 to 4 hours.
