Training Location: Carlsbad Lagoon

Agua Hedonia, more commonly known as the Carlsbad Lagoon, is a beautiful natural preserve in the heart of north county San Diego. It’s calm, flat waters are the perfect place to learn SUP skills and practice paddle board yoga. We might have visitors! Jumping fish, water fowl, and other marine life live in the marshlands and waters of the lagoon. Because this is a natural preserve, there are no bathroom or food facilities on site. As such, we will take an extended lunch break each day to provide ample time to refuel and recover.

Our launch site daily will be the public access beach located at 4700 Bayshore Drive, Carlsbad CA 92008.
