We had a great time and in addition to learning the basics of paddleboarding we learned what to do in rough water. David and the coaching team were there to give us individual tips as we paddled our boards. The equipment was first class and the team made sure everyone was included. No one was ever left behind. David and Ned and the team were very pleasant

I participated in the 11 am Friendly First Timer's class with Paddleboard Orlando this morning. Let me just say that the atmosphere and the experience were second to none. David and Ned were extremely professional and helpful with all the techniques needed to have this first-time paddler cutting through the water in no time. Whether you're looking for some great exercise or just a relaxing morning on the water, look no further than Paddleboard Orlando!

As a first-timer with not the greatest balance in the world, within 90 minutes I was paddling like a champ. Well, maybe not a champ, but better than I ever expected. Ned and David, with humor and patience, helped the learners in our group glean the most from the board and the stroke, and also imparted their love of the sport. Thanks guys, definitely coming back for more.

My husband Tom and I usually do a segway tour when traveling, but decided to try paddleboarding with Ned, Dave, Sean, Tom (and company) instead. What a great time! There are plenty of people to help if you need it, but really it felt comfortable very quickly. This is a "must do" if you like a great time at a VERY reasonable price.

I was seeking an attraction near Orlando that was outside of the "Disney" realm and came across Paddleboard Orlando in my internet search. After a phone call and some e-mail exchanges I was set up for my first Paddleboard lesson at Wekiva. Right from the start of my communication David was excellent to interact with and spending the afternoon with him was even better. He is a superb instructor, extremely friendly and knowledgable about the sport as well as the Wekiva area. It was a truly amazing experience and I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed with the instruction or the area. It is absolutely beautiful!!
