Successful completion will result in a certification, so students may return at their leisure to rent boats!

SUP Yoga

Stand Up Paddling

Introductory Stand Up Paddleboarding

Have you ever wanted to learn to walk on water? See people standing up on huge "surfboards" and think it looks fun? It is! Easy to learn the basics, and great core workout! Improve and increase you balance and core muscles, while having a great time on the water! Unlike surfing you don't need waves to be able stand up paddle. In your beginning lesson, you will learn techniques to be able to stand up on the board, and paddle with correct technique, all in the safe and calm waters at Shoreline Lake. Once you've learned the basics, you can come back and rent a board to practice your new skills! In a lesson, the first 30 min will be on land, talking about the different parts of the board and how to get on and stand up. The next hour or so will be spent on the water. While this may not seem like a long time, it will be a good workout for you if you've never paddled!

What To Bring

Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Students should bring comfortable clothes, a jacket or fleece, a towel and change of clothes, lots of sun protection, a lanyard to secure their glasses around their heads, a bottle of water, and non-skid/non-marking shoes (water booties, aquasocks or Teva sandals work great!).

SUP Yoga

Take your yoga practice outside and on the water. Your mat is a stand up paddleboard; the world is your studio and all the elements have been invited – sun, wind, water, and earth. Enjoy learning while adapting to the motion of the board, the continuous challenge to balance, the instant instability created by minor energy and weight shifts, and the focus required to ground while afloat.

What To Bring

Dress in layers as you would come to any yoga class. No Cotton. Sunglasses recommended. Swimsuit if you don’t want to get clothes wet.

Private Lessons

The Shoreline Aquatic Center offers a variety of classes to aid you in reaching your dreams of sailing into the sunset, winning gold medals windsurfing, or kayaking down unexplored rivers.

We also understand that there comes a time when you just need some one-on-one work with an expert to perfect that jibe, to delve into the nuances of racing tactics, or to refine that stroke. In these cases, a private lesson is just what you need!

Private lessons are also an option if you have definite scheduling conflicts or want to organize a special group event.

Private Lessons
Semi-Private Lessons

To schedule, please call the Boathouse at least one week before the date you desire your lesson in order to guarantee instructor and equipment availability. We will do our best to accommodate your wishes!

Private lessons are aimed at meeting the needs of more advanced enthusiasts who have already taken a group lesson or who have gained experience on their own. While we may be able to schedule a beginner level private lesson if extenuating circumstances exist, private lessons should not be viewed as a true alternative to the intro classes. We will not sell a one hour introductory private lesson as such a short lesson tends to breed frustration more than a love of the sport.

Summer Camp

Summer Camps

Kayaking, windsurfing, pedalboating, sailing, and more... Shoreline offers three different camps to suit the interests, skills and age level of every participant. Besides being fun, local and safe, kids get the chance to burn off all that summer energy and keep their minds engaged by learning watersports - without the risk of the actual Bay.

Camp Shoreline

Camp Shoreline engages even the liveliest child! A classic day camp experience for 5-11 year olds, with a mix of watersports and land activities, it's the perfect combination of the cerebral and physical to spark a camper's creativity and enthusiasm for learning. Campers get to kayak, canoe, row or cycle the pedalboats, and also take part in a variety of different activities, including playing games, participating in crafts, taking a sailboat ride, learning about Shoreline Park by hiking and birdwatching in its wildlife sanctuary, or even dropping by the historic Rengstorff House museum for a visit.

10am-3:00pm, Ages 5-11, $365

Windsurfing and Sailing Level 1

For 9-15 year olds wanting to learn how to windsurf and sail, we offer a Level I, hands-on Windsurfing & Sailing day camp that helps campers learn the basics and gain confidence. The supportive learning environment helps campers progressively develop each essential skill which includes water safety, and board and boat handling basics, with daily on-the-water exercises. New windsurfers start out on a land simulator to gain a solid understanding of wind direction and board handling before heading out on the water, and when sailing, students alternate skipper and crew duties to ensure they learn both positions.

9am-2:00pm, Ages 9-15, $399

Windsurfing and Sailing Level 2

For 9-15 year olds wanting to further hone their windsurfing and sailing abilities, we offer a comprehensive Level II Windsurfing & Sailing camp. Along with learning more advanced techniques, topics covered include refining sail trim, heel control and sail shape controls, as well as intensive sailing drills and informal racing. Extensive on-the-water instruction helps campers to keep developing the necessary skills that allow them to continue challenging themselves in these rewarding sports, which will yield them a lifetime of fulfillment.

11:30am-4:30pm, Ages 9-15, $399

Sailing Level 3

For ages 12-16. This is an advanced camp for sailing, with a focus on techniques used in sailboat racing. Like the Level I and II camps, this is a five-day camp but does not include Windsurfing. The Level III camp runs for three hours per day. It introduces one design dinghy racing to children between 12 and 16 yrs old and covers all necessary skills to be prepared for racing at a high school level. The course covers the most common right of way rules, how the starting sequence works, and the basics of strategy vs. tactics around the course. In addition to comprehensive drills to improve skills associated with racing, during the last three days a mini regatta will be held that tests what the campers have learned with some friendly competition.

Campers must be approved by Shoreline Aquatic Center's sailing instructors to enroll in Level III. Shoreline's staff will be contacting candidates for this camp. If you believe your camper is ready to advance to Sailing Level III, please contact our office at (650)965-7474.

Kayak Polo

We offer a fun and creative team-oriented kayak polo game. Groups are split into two opposing teams. The games take place in kayaks on the water where each team has a goal to defend. Points are won as teams toss a ball into the opposing team’s net. Once a person catches the ball they can no longer paddle towards the opposing team’s goal and must determine whether they should pass or shoot from where they float. It is like basketball on water-just don’t lose your balance.
