ZUP™ Boarding

New for 2014, Live Oac is pleased to introduce you to a brand new way to ride:

The ZUP Board™ is a revolutionary new platform for watersports fun!

In our many years of teaching and guiding watersports adventures, we've never found something so easy to enjoy. Everyone who's ever tried to "get up" on water skis, a wakeboard, or even a kneeboard knows what it's like to try, try again. With the Zup Board, everybody getZUP!

You can ride this thing just about any way you want: Lay down, kneel, sit, or stand.

Beginner to Pro, you're going to have fun on the ZUP Board. We've found it very helpful as a transition to other watersports. Get comfortable with the stand-up position for waterskiing or wakeboarding by learning on the ZUP. In many cases, we have people realize that the ZUP Board is the most fun of all.

The quiet waters around Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge are perfect for playing on the ZUP Board. We can bring along skis, wake boards, or a tube, but don't be surprised if you spend the whole trip on the ZUP. It's a blast!

No experience is necessary. Live Oac's ZUP instructors (USCG licensed captains) will guide you through the learning experience with a patient and helpful attitude. You'll be riding in no time, because we're serious when we say "everybody getZUP!"

Our access to multiple locations suitable for ZUP Boarding means we can offer programs regardless of time of day, tide, and even in various wind directions. It is important to note the close proximity we have to watersports areas. That means you'll spend more time riding and less time getting there and back. You'll have about as much boarding time on our 2 hour wakeboarding trip as with "comparable" 3 hour trips departing elsewhere. Or, we can go for 3+ hours with enough board time to guarantee a great night's sleep!

*A Note On Timing and Capacity:

It usually doesn't take long to get the hang of ZUP Boarding. We suggest planning a ZUP trip based on about 20-30+ minutes of overall trip time per person.

Watersports outings can accommodate up to 6 passengers per boat, but depending on duration, all passengers might not be able to participate on the water. Ask us if you are unsure how much time would make sense for your group.
