Great fun and great tuition from John. Relaxed atmosphere with everyone in the group having a "go for it" attitude. Would thoroughly recommend this 2 hours of fun on (and in) the water!

Portballintrae is beautiful and an great place for a beginner. Jennifer is an excellent instructor and covered all of the necessary details to make a novice feel confident. We ended the session with... More

This was my first time paddle boarding and I'm so glad I did it - it was brilliant fun! My main reservation was about feeling cold in the water but the wet suits and booties provided,kept me warm. John was an excellent instructer, he was very clear and attentive and the structure of the class was well thought out and... More

Just back from a weekend in North Coast for my birthday, and as a B'day treat my wife booked me a SUP lesson with John from Surf SUPNI. Arrived for my one to one lesson with the sun shining and the water flat calm - perfect! Met John, who immediately put me at ease and we got straight down to... More

Supping is great fun and their instructor John was first class. I normally don't pick new things up very quickly but I managed this! The lesson is great fun and value for money. Really recommend you give this ago! Can't wait to go back.

The setting is gorgeous and the instruction was top notch. All equipment and gear was provided and we all had a great time. And the three over-40s in the group did a pretty good job of keeping up with the three under-20s in the group. :) All in all, a very enjoyable experience. It was much easier than I expected......

From start to finish the experience was superb. John clearly knows what he's doing and makes you feel totally at ease. Stop thinking about it and go for it!

Whilst traveling in N. Ireland, we had the opportunity to SUP it up on the coast with the help of google and Surf SUP NI. The weather was lovely for us, so we called up the company and luckily there was a time available to paddle out and see Dunluce Castle from the water. We set a time for the... More
