My whole family rented SUPs for a few hours during the afternoon and had a blast. They brought up to a sort of lagoon where the waves were pretty calm and not too difficult for the beginners among us

Did the intro to SUP surfing. Edith was great! She was incredibly patient with my total inability to stay on my board. Could not have had more fun.

My wife and I had a morning SUP lesson with Andy. It was a first for both of us and Andy was a fantastic teacher. He coordinated with us for optimal conditions, was patient, informative and completely engaging. He and his wife run the best SUP outfit around. I can’t recommend SUP Freedom Riders enough. Thanks, Andy!

I spent a week in Santa Teresa and Mal Pais, and happened upon Freedom Riding SUP. The SUP lessons and guided tour into the waters of Cabuya Park was amazing. Whales and turtles were in the area this time of year and swam right by us! How sweet is that! When we got back to their store I got some great tips and lessons about SUP and Surf board designs by Andy, Edith's husband. Andy is a true professional, surfer and board shaper and lessons I got about board designs for the right wave types were invaluable - I ended up renting one of his boards for the week. It was such a super sweet ride, light as feather but between the well designed shape and materials it still carry my weight well in the waves. Andy I'll be back soon to scoop up one of those sweet boards of yours! Cheers!
