Why did we decide to offer a symposium on the north shore of Boston?  To put it simply, it's one of the most beautiful and versatile areas to paddle and we want everyone to know it!  We have gathered some of the best paddlesport coaches in the country to come out and share what they know, from intro tidbits to advanced techniques.  

BNP stems from the notion that everyone can be involved in paddlesports.  Whether it be the occasional paddle dipper, the nature watcher, or the extreme paddler, there is something for everyone.  Age, gender, physical ability, etc., do not matter.  What does matter is an open mind and a desire to redefine your limits, however you see fit.  So come join us and discover the amazing world of paddlesports!
