Metz SUP

DSN: 480-5705

Description: An ODR classic, the ever-popular Metz Stand up Paddleboard tour provides an amazing way to take in the sites of this beautiful French City. Glide across the canals of the Moselle River through the city center! We will start off outside the city then “commute” into downtown via waterways and canals. A small docking platform allows us to secure our craft and then wander the city streets in search of a sweet or savory lunch option. Perhaps a Royale with Cheese? Register early to ensure you snag a space! No previous SUP experience required, however water confidence, balance, and some physical endurance suggested. The winds can be unpredictable.

Participant Restrictions: Ages: 6+, water confidence a must: young paddlers ride with parent, youth must fit in our PFD’s or have your own. Young riders with parent, teenaged paddle solo. Riders UP TO 250lbs.

Departure Logistics: Ramstein Outdoor Recreation’s main front doors will open for our pre-trip briefing at 0830. Please park in the covered terminal parking garage—not in the ODR 2-hour loop. The meeting area is inside the ODR Adventure Programs Office. Note that the retail store is not open for purchases on the morning of departure.
