My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful fall weather (and our flexible telecommuting schedules) to go paddleboarding on a weekday afternoon. It was amazing! It happened to be just us, so we had a lovely private tour of the islands of Oakmont, that we had never before discovered in our own town of Pittsburgh. Ian was an enthusiastic and super-capable guide and even though we are newbies at paddleboarding, we felt confident on the water in just a few minutes. It was beautiful and educational, and a wonderful mental health break. The pictures are great too! We can't wait to do it again!

Ian is an AMAZING guide, super knowledgeable about the area, really friendly, and made sure we all had a great time. We went on the fall foliage tour and WOW, the scenery was breathtaking. I have already told so many people about the experience and can't wait to do it again next year!

I grew up here and had never explored the islands before or knew that they even existed!, Seeing them from a paddle board was surprising and fun. The tour was great with a bit of adventure, instruction and a lot of knowledge. Definitely worth the trip and the boards were top notch.

I have been paddling for a number of years now, but this year I experienced some disconcerting health issue related to a medication and had a bad experience. I tapped my mentor, Ian Smith at SurfSUP, to get me back in the groove. Mission accomplished. We paddled the Allegheny Islands with a family group, two grade school age kids and Mom and Dad, who had never paddled before. Ian had them up and standing and paddling within minutes and off we went. I was a little slow to stand, buy my favorite cheerleader helped me along and the rest of the trip is just what I expect from him....Educational, entertaining and physically challenging without being too strenuous for this over 60 grandma. Highly recommend this experience to anyone.
