I booked this lesson for my wife and me a couple months ago. My wife has wanted to try stand up paddleboard for years and this was my chance to surprise her. Nancy was quick to confirm and provide details, she also called to confirm the day of the lesson and ask if we wanted to try our lesson in... More

Are you from the Midwest? Have to travel by airplane to get to an ocean? Want to experience a lifestyle sport enjoyed by coastal communities? Not extremely adventurous but want to get involved and get in the water? Then paddle boarding can be your thing and Nancy is definitely your instructor. I was fortunate to get a lesson scheduled on... More

Our paddle boarding lesson was wonderful! We had four novices (three teens and one parent), and Nancy had everyone standing on their boards in the first 10 minutes. Her instruction made all the difference. It was a truly memorable hour -- fun for everyone and lots of pictures to prove it. We highly recommend Nancy, who is absolutely delightful.

I decided to try stand up paddle board for the first time and I am so glad I found Nancy through tripadvisor! It was like I was boarding with an old friend, she was so friendly and knowledgable. We went to Dana Point Harbor, she explained how to paddle and stand up, and off we went! We didn't even get... More

My daughter (15) and I decided to try SUP for the first time during a recent visit to California and took a lesson from Nancy in Dana Point harbor. We both had such an amazing time. Nancy is a terrific instructor and she made the entire experience so enjoyable. She even spent the extra time to introduce the sport to... More

After years of walking the Dana point harbor and watching the number of SUP's increase each year, I finally decided to give it a try. I took a lesson with Nancy who was not only a great and patient instructor (I am 65 and not in the best of shape) but she was so personable I felt like I was... More

A friend and I decided to try SUP, and I booked with Nancy by phone. You can pay in person or online (a quick, smooth process). I am not known for my balance and it took a little bit of time to get my "sea legs", but thanks to Nancy's expert coaching I was able to stand up the entire... More

My wife and I took a lesson from Nancy and had a great time. It's no wonder why Stand Up Paddling is such a fast growing activity. Anyone from 9 up can do it with about 10-15 minutes of instruction. The boards are very stable and you can paddle as hard or as slowly as you like. Nancy's instruction was... More

I took a 2-person lesson with my 10-year old daughter. She just wanted to get on the board and go, so I hoped the lesson would allow us sufficient paddling time in the harbor. Well, Nancy instructed us in the basics and had us on the water wtihin 15 minutes. The rest of our lesson was while paddling about Dana... More

My wife and I stayed in Dana Point this past weekend. One of the must do activities here is Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Dana Point Harbor is perfect because it has both the protected area for first timers like us and the ability to go out onto the ocean for the more advanced. Nancy and Alex were our instructors and...
