SUP Lessons on St. John

 

St. John with its beautiful beaches and warm water is the perfect place to learn to paddleboard. With a board you can get to those unspoiled places that cannot be reached by foot or car. It is best to start in a calm bay with little waves and winds. The basic technique (paddle stroke and turns) can be learned in 1-2hours. Everybody can do it, from 5 year old kids to 70 year old seniors.

If you have paddled before or want to try it on your own, we also have high quality paddle boards for rent, you can do day rentals or weekly rentals.

We also rent out snorkeling gear which you can add to the paddle board rental packages (we have the new Easybreath full face masks as well as traditional masks, snorkels and fins). Or go for a night paddle with our new LED night paddles!

My sister and I could not had more fun paddle boarding. We credit our success to the fabulous instruction from Lucy. We met Lucy at Chocolate Hole ( water was perfect for us newbies) and she patiently and expertly walked us through the basic and the necessary skills of boarding. We had carbon fiber paddles that were properly adjusted to... More

Great introduction to paddleboarding. Lucy is an excellent teacher. She was very patient and encouraging. The area we paddled in was beautiful and sheltered. We were all very comfortable and had a great time. We will definitely continue SUP at home and would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting St. John.

Firstly Lucy is a great teacher, relaxed, patient and knows how to teach people. We had a 2hr private lesson at Chocolate Hole. The water was exceptionally calm and it was very easy to get comfortable on the boards. Lucy knows a lot about SUP'ing but also the environment which was really nice. It was a blend of teaching but... More

Another great rental from Lucy. We rented intermediate boards for most of the week and fell in love with the faster boards. They were practically brand new. We change boards on the last day to inflatables to take on a boat trip. Again they were great boards. We also did a night paddle that was very cool. Lucy is very... More

Great introduction to paddle boarding thanks to Lucy. Thankfully she is very patient and detailed with her instruction. We had a wonderful time - even saw a sea turtle and sting ray while boarding. Thank you Lucy!

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to yoga & paddleboard in St. John's, and this was a great place to do it. Lucy was very informative and guided us through the bay, showing us sea turtles, all while we paddleboarded and yoga. And the basic yoga moves were pretty tough on the paddleboard! We had a great time and would... More

This is the second year we've rented boards from Lucy, and she's really the best! Super accommodating, delivering the boards right to our car, and great at suggesting the right boards for you. We rented twice with her this trip and received different boards to accommodate the different people we would be using them with - faster, racing style boards... More

We love the island of St John and plan a multitude of activities while visiting. One of our favorite activities is SUP with Lucy!! Lucy delivers the boards to your doorstep and always has great trip suggestions for SUP... We paddled Francis Bay over to Maho, Cinnamon Bay, and Great Cruz Bay. Two boards for our family worked great (7... More

Lucy is awesome. From the time I sent the first email to her until after we returned the boards, she was very responsive, friendly, and helpful. We elected to pick up the boards ourselves (she does offer free delivery, but we were in the area anyway), and she was ready for us. She allowed us to select the boards we... More
