Stand-Up Paddleboard Afternoon

Trips to be scheduled.

Meet at the Sequoia building at 12 noon and we plan to be back on campus by 6 PM at the latest. 

Take a study break and join College Outdoors on reading days for a fun afternoon of stand-up paddleboarding (SUPing)! This trip will meet at the Sequoia building at 12 noon and head to nearby Clackamette Park where you can learn the basics of SUPing and enjoy some spring sunshine.

This trip is perfect for beginner SUPers and anyone who wants to enjoy some of the clearest calm water in the area. We may see great blue herons, eagles, and spring blossoms.

The trip will be cancelled and your money refunded in case of inclement weather on Friday, April 28.  If the weather forecast is good for Saturday, April 29, everyone on this trip has the option to go SUPing on Saturday, April 29, or receive a refund if Saturday isn’t good for your schedule.

Physical Demands

No experience necessary! We’ll teach you everything you need to know, and SUPing is a great option for beginners. The distance paddled and time on the water will be tailored to the group and weather conditions.

We’ll plan to spend a couple hours on the water, either sitting, standing, or kneeling on a floating paddleboard. Paddling uses full range of motion in the upper body and requires some balance. Swimming ability is not required since you will be wearing a Personal Floatation Device (aka, a lifejacket), but you should be comfortable in deep water.

Pre-Trip Meeting

College Outdoors trips have a Pre-Trip Meeting (PTM) prior to the trip to help you prepare, which takes place at the Sequoia warehouse on the Graduate Campus.

At this meeting you’ll meet the trip leaders and other participants, learn more about the trip activity, location, and schedule, and be given a packing list of everything you need for your trip. The trip leaders and Sequoia staff will then help you find and borrow anything on the packing list that you’d like to borrow. We have high-quality outdoor clothing and equipment, and it’s all free to use for your trip!

If you miss a Pre-Trip Meeting, check your email for important info you missed.
