“Great fun with great instructor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had great time doing SUP lesson with Brad. He's so friendly and funny. Budd's beach is so calm and nice, perfect spot to learn SUP. Recommend everyone to have a try. Bumbles cafe has nice coffee too.

“Heaps of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We had our stand up paddle boarding lesson with Brad today. It was enormous fun and Brad was a great instructor. He was relaxed and friendly. He had us out on the water and standing up in no time. Budd's Beach is a good spot to learn and also just hang out with a grassy park running along the canal, shady trees and the gorgeous Bumbles Cafe for a coffee or meal and Suga Suga for a browse.

“A must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

My husband and I found a great deal for two lessons, and we loved every minute of it! It was the first time I'd been, and U was able to stand up in the first try. The location is perfect, too,

Brad is a great instructor and takes the utmost care in ensuring the participants' safety. This is a GREAT stepping stone to surfing if hitting the waves seems all too intimidating to start with. We're definitely going to take this up as a hobby sport!
