I had initially signed up for the SUP Glow event months back and was completely looking forward to it. The event which I had signed up for happened this past Saturday and I was totally blown away by the experience. As with Pirate Coast in general the staff make this company the greatest of it's kind in California. Mark hires amazing people. The guides for the group of approximately 20 people were Mike, Jay and Austin with Mike as the lead. Not only is he an amazingly skilled paddle boarder he is the coolest person and his personality and ease of dealing with customers makes him a natural for this type of thing. Jay and Austin took the middle and back guide positions and are also friendly, helpful and easy to talk with. The event itself was amazing. We set out towards the PCH bridge right as the sun was setting. It was dark by the time we turned around at the halfway point and besides some boat wake, the water was glass and the wind was non existent. The lights from the bottom of the boards shone upon the algae below that lit up like stars. As we neared our launch point at the end of the adventure I was a bit saddened that it was ending but still glad I got to experience it. Thank you to Mark for putting these events on and running the best paddle board and kayak sales and rental company around. Always a pleasure to toss my business your way and tell as many people about it as possible. You have earned it.

Was an amazing night sup experience! Mike was fantastic as our guide and the new port bay was beautiful as the sun set.

This unassuming operation in a corner of the Newport dunes beach area makes for a nice activity. They have standup paddleboard‘s and kayaks, both one person and two person. Pirate coast is staffed by a very helpful staff. (Although one of them was a bit unclear as to the hours of operation.) I rented a kayak for an hour and a half and was given minimal instruction although paddling a kayak should be self-explanatory for most people. I would recommend that you observe the tides before heading out so you can use the current to push you back to the starting beach. (You don’t want to be exhausted and then have to paddle against the current on the way back.) Other recommendations: wear sandals, Bring sunscreen even on a cloudy day. Countdown getting your pants wet so dress appropriately. (The dripping from the paddles usually ends up across your lower waist.) Have fun!

I took my adult son and his girlfriend to SUP Glow on a Saturday night. We had all previously been paddle boarding during the day, but never at night. It is a bit pricey, so I don't see us doing it more than once. Maybe it's like a "Bucket List" item. It was very well run. Staff was very friendly. We all felt very safe and cared for the entire time. Paddle boarding on the water in the dark was very relaxing. All three of us were glad we went.
