To ensure a safe and successful ABS™ Aqua Board class, please read through this module pertaining to board set-up and tethering. 

Please also note that students may apply sunscreen, lotion or even oil to their body before class. These lotions and oils can rub off on the eva, causing it to become slippery. We recommend that students wash their hands with soap and water before class.

The recommended pool depth is 3.5 feet or deeper

It is very important to tether the boards at least 5 feet from the pool deck and 3 feet from each other so if someone falls off during class they do not hit the side of the pool or another board.
