Beach Attire Clothing

Clothing Materials – Non-cotton, synthetic clothing is advised. Lycra, Nylon, Spandex, Polyolefin, Polypropylene. Biking, Yoga, and workout apparel for example are usually blends of these non-natural fibers. Avoid cotton.

Fit – Good, on-the-water apparel is generally snugger fitting than your standard leisure wear. Keeping the apparel close to the body increases warmth and reduces wind drag.

For your feet: Bring Flip Flops or watershoes are highly recommended.

A few other things

Check local weather prior to departure and consider a cover up or wind breaker. Bring water shoes, flip flops or sandals which will be strapped to your board during the tour – most paddle barefoot. For guys, board shorts or thin athletic pants and shirt on top + second layer ie. Synthetic long-sleeve underneath or wind breaker.

▪ Paddling effort - If you are race training you are generating a lot more heat than if you are out SUP sightseeing. The slower you paddle the warmer your gear needs to be. The harder you paddle the more breathability you will need.

▪ Likelihood of falling in – Very low. Mind over matter. The more likely you are to fall in the water the more likely you will need Neoprene. Neoprene insulates better when wet or immersed better than any other material. I’d say leave it at home. The Napa River is flat water and boat traffic is rare during the week, limited to 5 mph. Falling is very unlikely just keep your head up and eyes on the horizon! Don’t look down, don’t look back and trust your board. Our boards are likely 2x the size you will require. Very stable.
