Fellow UNC grad Austin took me out Sunday morning from Motts Channel. I’m really glad you moved the time back to 8am instead of 9am. Couldn’t have been more beautiful and peaceful out in the marshes. It was my first time on an SUP and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Austin did a fantastic job!

Thank Patrick A

My teenage son and I have paddle boarding for a few years and have been venturing into SUP surfing. Blake did an awesome job of teaching us how to choose the correct wave, time the waves and our paddling and we were able to catch several waves that day! Great success! I was also appreciative of text reminders of where... More

I had originally signed up for the Saturday morning paddle board fitness class. Due to instructor availability, the class had to be cancelled. Blake called, apologized profusely, and gave me ample notice that the class was cancelled. After leaving a message in the afternoon, someone from the company (the owner, I suspect) called to follow up and be sure I... More

When we arrived at the marina, instructor had all the equipment and everything ready to go. We got some helpful instruction and headed out on our adventure with a small group - the instructor/guide... More

My adult daughter and I took a lesson with Steve on a quiet Friday morning. Steve was a fun instructor who gave us the basics we needed to get started. Neither of us had been on paddleboards before.She is athletic and had no difficulty standing up and paddling. I, on the other hand, fell into the water on my first... More

On vacation and wanted to take a paddleboarding lesson. Called many places and couldn't get an afternoon lesson. Heard many excuses with it being to hot, to windy, and tide not right. Called Cape Fear Paddleboarding and talked to Jason. He took my information, checked the conditions, and called me back. He found an instructor, "Steve", and set it up... More

We had a party of nine with different levels of swimming ability, balance and age range from 5-72. Some sat and paddled, some kneeled, the rest stood. Everyone had fun and 3 said they want boards for Christmas!

My husband and I took a paddleboarding lesson with Nolan. He was a great instructor. We went on the morning excursion, so it wasn't too hot yet. It's a lot of fun, and I felt confident in my abilities by the end of the lesson. We would definitely recommend it!

Overall my experience with Cape Fear Paddleboarding was really great. I called the day before and arranged for myself and friend to have a morning paddleboard group lesson. Our instructor, Steve, was personable, patient, and knowledgeable. We spent an hour and 45 minutes on the water. At the end of the lesson we were each given a voucher for a... More
