My sister and I had a private lesson with Linda being new to paddle boarding. Linda is professional, calm and friendly. Our timing was good so we saw some art installations on the water and on top of some buildings for Gold Coast's Mermaid Festival. Highly recommended!

Linda and Rob are awesome and gave great instructions on improving our technique. Most of our group are dancers and we had a blast attempting head stands, splits , yoga etc,... More

She made it very informal with time to have fun and practice tricks using her professional advice. While on the water you have a beautiful view of... More

If you're looking for something do on a nice warm day, I would highly recommend! Linda is so friendly and her passion just takes over and creates a super relaxed environment which helps you ease into the lesson. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor to go on the tour with!!! Most fun I've had in a long time!!
