Have you always wanted to try kayaking or SUP (stand up paddleboarding), meet new friends, and develop a sense of accomplishment that comes with new experiences? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Samdia Lakes is the place to get started. 

We offer weekly Introductory classes and exploration experiences for stand up paddleboarding and kayaking at Sandia Lakes Recreation Area every Wednesday evening (5:30-7:30pm) from April through September. Sandia Lakes will be open to canoes, kayaks, SUPs, rafts, and just about anything with paddles. Entry to Sandia Lakes is just $8. We have Stand Up Paddleboards and whitewater kayaks available for rent and free to try. 

Our ACA-certified instructors offer low-cost 2-hour introductory paddling lessons each week by reservation. These lessons will teach you everything you need to know to be a safe and effective paddler on flat and gently-moving water. Introductory lessons include the cost of a kayak or SUP rental. We also offer lessons on learning the kayak roll. For this we recommend the participants already have their own kayak as proper fit and outfitting make a large difference when learning to roll. Reserve your lesson by calling us at (505)-717-2526 or using the button below.
