Called Cape Fear Paddleboarding and talked to Jason. He took my information, checked the conditions, and called me back. He found an instructor, "Steve", and set it up... More

We had a party of nine with different levels of swimming ability, balance and age range from 5-72. Some sat and paddled, some kneeled, the rest stood. Everyone had fun and 3 said they want boards for Christmas!

My husband and I took a paddleboarding lesson with Nolan. He was a great instructor. We went on the morning excursion, so it wasn't too hot yet. It's a lot of fun, and I felt confident in my abilities by the end of the lesson. We would definitely recommend it!

I'm going to make this short and sweet. I bought a SUP from Cape Fear Paddleboarding in April. Today I was told the board was too small from when while buying the board I was told it was perfect, so I'm out over $500. The instructions guy was VERY RUDE. He treated my girlfriend and I as if we were... More

Entrusted Mike B. with my 14 year old on his first excursion in paddle boarding. He is hooked! Safe, informative, and fun. Thank you, thank you to Mike B. for being such a great guide!

Overall my experience with Cape Fear Paddleboarding was really great. I called the day before and arranged for myself and friend to have a morning paddleboard group lesson. Our instructor, Steve, was personable, patient, and knowledgeable. We spent an hour and 45 minutes on the water. At the end of the lesson we were each given a voucher for a... More

Perfect spot to take teens new to SUP, as well as those who have been out many times before. Christian helped us and he was friendly, very helpful and professional. Smoothies at SurfBerry afterwards were delicious after our outing. Highly recommend!

This was a wonderful experience! The guide was awesome with our demanding group of 8. A perfect day paddling and floating for the best price around! We had a blast and will be returning very soon.

My daughter and I had a reservation but when we arrived at the shop they said the instructor was out sick. No one bothered to call us and let us know or reschedule. Luckily a guy from the surf camp was there and he called someone and he was nice enough to take us over and get us set up.... More
