Learn to Row

“I highly recommend the Learn to Row series. Coach Chris was concise and clear about basic technique, boathouse and rowing etiquette, and — like everyone else affiliated with MBRC — had a welcoming, helpful attitude towards newbies and experienced rowers alike.  The sessions were just the right length of time and always ended on a positive note. As a result, I looked forward to returning for each lesson and joined MBRC without hesitation when the series concluded. Thanks MBRC!” – Sherab Chodron (April 2018)

Beginners Rowing Classes

The water stretches out calmly before you. You are responsible for nothing except following the person in front of you. You adjust to the rhythm of the boat and you hear the undeniably beautiful sound of the oars moving through the water. Bubbles rush from underneath the hull as the speed of the boat increases with every stroke. You realize that for the next hour you are able to do nothing but row, and you are in paradise.

Well maybe not right away, but for those who started rowing through our Learn to Row program and fell in love with the sport, this is now a familiar scene. Whatever your reason for wanting to row, Miami Beach Rowing Club offers a positive and unique Learn to Row experience that you are not likely to forget. Please read our FAQs to answer questions you may have about whether or not rowing is the sport for you.
