Myself and five friends (aged early-mid 20's) decided to give paddle boarding a go upon reading some of the reviews on here. We all have varying interests and different sporting abilities, if any at all. Some of us had never surfed and the only water activities we had attempted were behind a boat in a lake.
Standing up on the paddle boards was a surprisingly difficult feat. Thomas was an amazingly patient and encouraging teacher who showed us step by step the capabilities of the board and how far we could push it before we fell off.
Our skills and capabilities increased quickly thanks to Thomas' thorough teaching and specific techniques. He was able to support those of us who were not given the gift of balance and he pushed the "show offs" to extend their confidence and skills.
Through the experience we travelled down the beautiful lagoon number two and by the end, all of us were able to paddle board successfully. Thomas even was able to take great action shots for us to remember this great experience.
We loved it so much we went and did another lesson. This time we went out to catch some waves in the ocean which was also brilliant and a completely new concept/activity for some of us. Overall, it was a great experience and we are even considering buying paddle boards once we get back to Australia.
This is an activity to suit most people of all different ages and interests, we could not recommend Thomas highly enough and will be telling our family and friends to give it a go when they come over.
Thanks for your patience, encouragement, humor and the cream for our reef cuts, but most of all, thanks for being the highlight of our holiday!
