We took our 11 & 14 year old boys on a 1.5 hr. river tour with John. We saw manatees and coastal birds. We were all novice paddle boarders, but John was an excellent teacher and we made a quick start. I highly recommend this trip!

We had never been paddle boarding before. John did a great job of making us feel comfortable with a quick training session before we took to the water and made sure everyone had a safe and fun trip. If you've never done this before I'd highly recommend it.

Our family group of eight decided to give this a try while vacationing in New Smyrna Beach. Our youngest paddler was 16 and the oldest was 71. A great activity for any age! We had beautiful weather for our outing. The scenery was beautiful. We could relax and talk or paddle hard if we wanted to. I would highly recommend... More

I have taken two different visitors to New Smyrna Stand Up for the paddleboarding experience. Both had a great time and experience. The instructor is amazing and so easy to work with. I will be back in the future. It is a workout but worth it for the experience!

I just did my second paddle with New Smyrna Stand up and once again it was great! I went with my 8 year old son; he loved it and the instructor was fantastic with him. The area is beautiful and the instructor has great knowledge about local animal and plant life. All around terrific - will do this every year... More

Great experience! My brother and I went for our first time with instructor for 90 minutes. Instructor was very laid back and patient, really could see his love for his job and nature. Great for beginners as it is very relaxing. Strongly suggest for anyone who stops by New Smyrna or even just passing by, doesn't take long and you... More

We did a 90 minute paddle with John and a group of about 12 other people. Only one person (other than John) had paddled before and of that group of novices only one person got wet. The learning curve was surprisingly easy and everyone enjoyed the relaxing paddle which was timed perfectly to be assisted by the tide and wind.... More

7/2/13 A friend took me on my first SUP experience a few years ago - I was hooked. So when my family all got together from all over the globe for a reunion I wanted to plan a really fun time. I booked a private party River Paddle. Samantha was fabulous with quick communications and making all the arrangements. John... More

John is a great instructor. The morning paddle on Callalisa Creek was very peaceful. Good workout too.
