My friend and I wanted to try paddle boarding, and both Lauren and Ian were great. Lauren gave us a really good lesson beforehand and got us set up with the right boards. Then we crossed the street to the beach, and she helped us get up and paddling, gave us a bit more instruction, then sent us off to have fun. There was no pressure to back within a certain time frame, no dire warnings about where to go or not go, just a good lesson plus a chance to go practice. We went back a couple of day later to do some more, and Ian, following his ethos of "we are treating you as someone wanting to learn paddle boarding and not just have the tourist experience" got us onto slightly more advanced boards. It felt really good to be learning something new, even though I did get a lot of 'practice' falling off and re-mounting the board :-) Next time I am planning to try their surf lessons!
