About Paddle Surf New Jersey

Stand Up Paddleboarding, also known as SUP has quickly become one of the world’s most exciting and fastest growing recreational water sports. Whether taking a relaxing paddle on flat water, experiencing the speed and glide of a down-winder, or venturing out into the surf to ride a few waves, stand up paddling will work your entire body and your mind. Founded in 2012, our goal at Paddle Surf New Jersey is very simple: Get you out on the water and up in a very short time, be safe, and most importantly, have lots of fun. Experienced certified instructors will teach you the basics of SUP all the way to advanced paddling techniques as you progress. We are surfers at heart and have a deep respect for the ocean and the surrounding environment. Responsibility, safety, and water etiquette are always at the core of our training. Join us for an hour or two for an experience you won’t forget. We are conveniently located along the Manasquan River in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, serving southern Monmouth and northern Ocean Counties.
