We'll meet at beautiful Beauport Beach! You don't need prior paddle board experience for this tour. I'll teach you the basics! Paddle board is very fun, and easier than it looks. You don't have to stand up on the board if you don't have the balance. You can sit on the board, and that makes it easier than kayak! Here's the plan : 1) Warm-Up & Paddle Board Setup 2) Paddle Board Class for Beginners 3) Excursion on the St-Lawrence River 4) Snack on the Beach 5) Yoga Stretches & Techniques We'll warm-up, learn the basic paddle strokes & techniques, and then go for a ride on the Saint-Lawrence river! Amazing views of the Orleans Island and Frontenac Castle are in store. Then we'll head to a secret part of the beach and have a healthy snack : fresh fruits, organic walnuts & almonds, and organic tea. Finally we'll enjoy some yoga stretches & techniques in the sand (or on the board if you like), and finally ride back to our starting point! The average temperature of Quebec City in July & August is hot enough to swim in the Saint-Lawrence! During the day, it is 30 Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) and more, and the water temperature is around 27 Celsius or above (80 Farhenheit).
I've been practicing paddle board for 7 years now, and practicing yoga for 12 years! I'm a certified personal trainer & certified yoga teacher. It will be my pleasure to introduce you to the joys of paddle boarding!
