Stand Up and Paddle!: Local Company Offers Classes and Excursions

Glacier Springs Adventure Company, LLC (GSAC), in Delafield, has a history rooted in making the most of the outdoors and a goal of helping stand up paddlers reconnect with themselves and the environment. The company offers safe and balanced SUP excursions—fully customizable to each paddler’s abilities and goals—on the 22 pristine lakes of Lake Country, as well as a variety of distance paddling adventures throughout the Midwest and Northwest.

GSAC also leads fitness classes with intensity levels suited for all ages and abilities, starting with Board Basics and progressing to the more concentrated full-body workout of the Board Fitness series.

Board Basics classes are designed for individuals new to SUP and include demonstrations of the proper technique for standing and paddling and ways to actively improve balance and strengthen one’s core during the experience. Board Fitness I, II and III classes are helpful for those who are comfortable in the water, experienced with SUP and actively involved in some type of exercise program.

All levels are welcome for open sunset paddles. GSAC owner David Smits says, “If you are looking for a spectacular way to close out the day, meet us for a sunset paddle.”
