Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to know how to swim? Yes, basic swim skills are required. There are no lifeguards at Lake Varner and all activities there are at your own risk.
Do I need to wear a life jacket? This is your personal preference. We do not recommend that you wear a life jacket as it will restrict your movement. The USCG does require you to have a life jacket on SUPs operating in surfing, swimming, or bathing areas. We will provide one for you if you rent one of our boards and you have tho option of wearing it or strapping it to your board.
What do I need to bring? Just yourself and a towel (even if you don't fall in , you'll get a little wet). Don't forget to wear sunscreen and bring your shades (ones you won't mind losing in the lake).
How old do you have to be to participate? You must be 16 years old to participate, or 13 years old if you are with a participating adult. A parent or legal guardian must be present to sign all waivers and observe class if you are under 18 years old.
Do I need my own paddle board? You are welcome to bring your own, but you don't have to. We have boards available and offer 2 pricing options: one with board rental and bring-your-own board pricing.
What should I wear? Something comfortable you can move it and don't mind getting wet. It's common for people to wear athletic shorts and a tank top.
Where is Lake Varner located? Lake Varner is located at Alcovy Road, just a 3.2 miles from the Newton County Sheriffs Office.
What else do I need to know? BE EARLY. It will take you time to get your board and anchor set in the water and we begin class PROMPTLY out of respect for everyones time. If you are late, you will miss important information on carrying your board, setting your anchor, how to get on (and fall off) your board, and you will disrupt class.
