"Thank you for a very enjoyable and effective introduction to paddleboarding, both Hal and myself particularly appreciated that you made sure that our class matched our ability. We made more progress than we imagined we could do when we started our class. The introduction to the technical and safety aspects of SUP was clearly provided and we were soon on the water. The class was great as it allowed us to see so much more of the coast. The stand up style enabled us to see three different bays from a new perspective, I should have taken a camera and will do next time! " Joe and Hal June 2010
