We were a huge group of about 20 guys and pretty much took over the lake under Linc's expert guidance. He made it easy (it really is) even for beginners to find our balance and get up to speed, and we enjoyed it immensely. Linc is a great guide and showed us all the interesting corners of the lake --... More

I thought I would have to drive 40 minutes to Hiawasee, but Linc brought the gear almost to my door in Murphy! He is a great guide, showed me how to enjoy paddling on the water, brought a tasty snack and we had an enjoyable conversation. Worth every penny!

My husband and I had never tried paddleboarding before but were anxious to give it a try. Linc took his time explaining what we needed to do and then gave great guidance to get us going. Once we were up and paddling (pretty quickly!), we had an awesome time. We were lucky enough to be out on a beautiful, breezy... More

Paddle boarding with Linc was a great way to spend the day. My entire family had a blast. It was a great way to learn the correct techniques of paddling and see all the scenery on the lake. It was the perfect amount of time on the water with some swimming, resting and then a great snack on the shore.... More

Linc is a great guide. He really knows the ins and outs of paddle boarding and will get you standing up if you are willing. The scenery is beautiful and Linc's snacks are great!

My husband and I have wanted to try a SUP for a while.Linc did a terrific job educating us on the basics before we got in the water and on proper technique once we got on the boards. He's a cool guy with a lot of neat stories to tell and a fun personality. Our mid-way power snack was delicious!... More

This trip was SO MUCH FUN! We were able to schedule the day before, and it was completely hassle free. Linc was really laid back and he even let us use some of his sunscreen when we forgot ours at home! Such a great time. Lake Chatuge is one of the prettiest places I've ever been and I can't wait...

A group of 6 people ages 10 to 46, none of which had previous SUP experience. Our guide Linc was great in teaching us how it works. Like others mention, we were all up and paddling around happily within the first couple of minutes, enjoying the paddling and some great views of the lake. Honestly I did not think SUP... More

I had never been stand up paddle boarding before but wanted to try it. I scheduled a time with Southern Water Trails and invited my family. All we had to do was show up. Linc, our instructor and guide took care of everything. He brought quality gear for us and was very knowledgeable in how to teach us (all first... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Linc had the patience of a saint with our 8-year old who got a little frustrated and tired. We were all very comfortable with him and were standing up on the boards very quickly. Linc helped each of individually and made the trip lots of fun. Having snacks and water about halfway through...
