Paddle Boarding & Pizza Thursday On Hudson River

The Hudson River becomes more than simply a backdrop at the Paddle Boarding & Pizza event sponsored by Urban Escapes New York. Combining the thrill of surfing with the simple logistics of canoeing, paddle boarding allows you to commune with nature and get a great work-out.

The event will take place on Thursday September 30th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and it is a partner either convince a friend to sign-up too or be prepared to meet someone new. By the time you've brought your paddle board back to the pier you will be more than ready for the greasy New York pizza awaiting you on the dock.

Date: Thursday, September 30
Time: 6:30-9:30 PM
Cost: $85
Included: 2-hour paddle board instruction, certified guides, pizza and refreshments
Location: North River Piers, West Side Highway & Houston Street End
Bring: beach attire (long shorts and a rash guard or other synthetic shirt are great), towel, dry set of clothes, combination lock (lockers and changing rooms available at the facility)
