Rita was a terrific teacher. SUP is something I always wanted to try and she made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. I took an early morning lesson from her last weekend when the waters were calm but yet she talked me through with ease with the first rolling waves I encountered. She made me feel so... More

Rita was on time, excellent at explaining and teaching and very encouraging to our whole family. She had everything we needed including floating sunglasses. Our five year old rode on her board and was even able to get up and paddle with her help. After our lesson was over, Rita let us use the boards while she gave her next... More

It was a beautiful morning and before we knew it we were out on... More

I had such a fun time learning to stand up paddle. I can't wait to try it again. People of all ages can enjoy this activity. Rita was an amazing teacher. She was very patient and encouraging. Moreover, I called last minute to set up a lesson, as I had only heard about stand up paddle on my last day... More

Thank you for the kind words! I was thrilled we were able to find a time that worked and got you out on the water before you headed back to the snowbelt. :-) Had a great time and look forward to seeing you next time you are out this way! More

I had a wonderful experience my first time trying SUP. Rita was awesome and patient. It was a beautiful day on the water. She even took my kids out for a ride which they loved. I highly recommend.

Rita was such a patient positive teacher. I am an older first time paddle boarder so she was great. I loved it and want to do it again! I thought she was very reasonably priced also!!

Rita got our family up and paddling quickly, was great to get some instruction on proper way to use the equipment. She took care of everything for us, the boards, the location, and took some great pictures as well. Rates are competitive , so can't ask for more.

This is so much fun. Also did it last year with my husband who is 60 years old. We had awesome time. Then again with 62 years old girl friend this year. She also had great time.
