Play - Demos/Lessons/Rentals
Stand up paddling and windsurfing is all the rage on Lake Champlain. If you'd like to join the craze but don't own a board or know where to begin, WND&WVS is offering weekly opportunities during the summer of 2017 to get on the water from Perkin's Pier in downtown Burlington.
For weekly listings of our camps, classes, trips and leagues for the season, have a look at our Calendar Page.
