I chose this activity for a me and my friends as part of my 50th birthday party weekend, and a very good choice it was.

I booked John Bustard for both a paddle boarding lesson and tourist tour of the area with a group of people who were in the area for a corporate event. John was fantastic from start to finish. I didn't know the area or the best thing to book, and he gave me all sorts of tips to help make the... More

My wife and I were booked in for a session by a relative who was keen to see us fall in the cold bay!! There was a fair amount of anxiety involved, mainly concerning exactly how bad I would look in a wetsuit! We were kitted out and off we went for a superb amount of fun. Our session was... More

All of us had a very enjoyable morning 'mastering' paddleboarding - teens and parents, with John being a patient yet fun teacher. Fantastic activity to spend time with the whole family!

John managed to squeeze us in before we had to leave beautiful Portballintrae. Whilst the weather wasn't on our side, it certainly didn't dampen our spirits and we learned to master the Paddle-board and so much more about the bay and local wildlife! Thanks for an amazing experience Surf SUP NI! Rory & Ellie

A great fun experience on the water, John is a great instructor for all ages. Even in pelting rain we had a lot of fun, so much so we did it all again two days later. Felt very safe both in equipment provided and in the instructions from John. Would highly recommend.
