If you want to SUP in perfect waves with the nicest people, this is the spot. Shawn and Nat went out of their way to make our stay mind- blowing. Plenty of boards and paddles to choose from and expert guidance, made the sessions a dream. We will be back next year!

There is an abundance of coconuts that the staff happily serve, as well as delicious meals day and night. I highly recommend that if you are looking for somewhere to... More

My husband and I came to visit with a group of friends and had very little SUP or surfing experience. We spent the entire week in the water, mixing the visit in with some yoga, hiking,... More

Shawn is the best instructor for any sport I have ever tried! I went from never being on a SUP to surfing small waves all in the course of one week. Shawn had plenty of choices of boards and paddles--and encouraged me to try as many as possible. The stay at the resort was relaxing and fun. Nathalie makes the... More

Whether you're looking to SUP, surf, or kiteboard, Shawn and Nathalie are the absolute BEST. Shawn has a true gift for teaching, you simply can't find a better instructor. You'll be riding waves in a day - or in minutes! If you can already surf or SUP, you'll be amazed at how much you can still learn from Shawn. Pilon... More

Yes, I know Pavones is a surfing haven. However, going SUP'ing at Pilon or doing a downwinder with Shawn, Natalie, Zoe & Enzo was an absolute blast! Great people, wonderful instruction and a must do if you are in Pavones!
