Thanks to famous fans like Rihanna, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston and now Darren Criss, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) has quickly cruised from obscure to ubiquitous. SUP has grown exponentially in popularity just as Darren Criss has. Whether you're trying it for the first time or looking to hone your skills, hang out on the river with Darren Criss, American actor, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. And while you're board-to-board with Darren, you might even ask him how he got his washBOARD abs. Criss is best known and uber-adored for his portrayal of Blaine Anderson, an openly gay student, on the Fox musical comedy-drama smash hit series Glee.
Not to worry If you've never even seen a paddleboard in person - New York Kayak Company instructors have taught plenty of novices, and this experience will cover basic safety and paddling techniques in a fun and friendly environment. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you pick up the basics. And the more you learn, the more fun you’ll have. Before you know it, you and Darren will be tearing up the Hudson River together!
