When traveling I saw people out on paddle boards with their pups - I wanted to do it too! Booked a lesson with my best friend and my four footed friend. It was better than I could have ever imagined. Linc coordinated everything for Bryn - my pup. He was so patient and helpful. We had the BEST time! I... More

We planned a family tour with Linc as a Father's Day gift. We are so glad we did! It was a great opportunity to spend time together while learning something new. Our 8 & 12 year old kids thought it was a blast and had no trouble getting started thanks to great instruction. The weather was nice & the scenery... More

My husband, 11 and 8 year old daughters, and I made a last minute decision to visit North Georgia at the end of July. I saw on TripAdvisor that paddleboarding with Linc was a must do! So we did. Linc did not have our preferred morning or afternoon times available so he suggested a sunset session and gave many reasons... More

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...
