“Had a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Shawn was an excellent instructor. My girlfriend and I did a full day of paddle boarding with Shawn in Dominicalito. We both had some experience on flat water, but were interested in learning to ride waves...and with Shawn's guidance we did! He's very knowledgeable with all skill levels and knows how to cater his lessons accordingly. Super nice and very trustworthy. If you find yourself in or around Dominical, look him up.

“Don't miss this opportunity!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Standup paddle boarding is booming, and you won't find a better person/family to introduce you to it than Shawn, Nathalie and their kids (Zoe is 10 and already on her way to a world championship!). Shawn is a passionate about SUP and a very effective teacher of anything having to do with ocean waves/sports, attuned to your existing skills and moving you forward at a pace that works for you. I spent a couple hours on the ocean with them and was hooked--there is a long list of benefits to your body and mind and the setting is totally vacational. And while you're paddle boarding, talk to Nathalie (Land Assurance) about real estate opportunities in this area--she is such a vibrant, knowledgeable, insightful realtor and she sorted through a lot of stuff to show us just what we were looking for to help make our dream come true.

“Great fun for the whole family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Shawn, Natalie and their kids are amazing...we went on a 3 night paddle boarding adventure to Pavones with our families and had the time of our life. We learned the basics and then were able to catch wave after wave. The conditions were great but it was their instruction, patience and commitment that made it a perfect trip. I can't wait to go again!!!
