“Amazing fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

This is my second experience and to me the most important thing is the owner Bob cares about safety first!! First time I had never been on a bd neither were my sis or 12 and 15 yr old nephews. Bob showed us and then came with us and others through the mangroves. The next time due to wind and that I had 2 friends wo never paddleboarded he checked 3 sites before determining which would be the Safest and fun. We meet at van Wetzel and got to see sealife, gorgeous homes and the bridge. Awesome and bob came with us!! I will never use anyone else!

“Great experience & a beautiful day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Bob provided us with great instruction and nice equipment for our maiden paddle boarding voyage. He was punctual and available to us throughoutthe morning.
He instructed us novices on how to get from out of the water to standing and how to paddle effectively. We were on our way shortly after hitting the water. We will definetly rent from him again, and strongly recommend that you do too! Lido beach is beautful and peaceful!

“great time on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Bob has a lot of knowledge and an absolutely huge selection of boards. Now that I have rented some boards in other cities I have a new appreciation for just how nice the equipment and instruction was. I would highly recommend and I'm looking forward to re booking when I'm back in the area.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We saw the Paddleboards in the water and made a reservation for the following morning on Lido Beach at 9am. Bob was on time and provided us with a concise informative lesson. He had us on our board in the water within 15 minutes. I was worried my wife and teenage daughter would not enjoy the experience but after the 8 hours they were hooked. They said it was the best day at the beach they had ever had. The equipment provided was in perfect condition. I can't say enough positive things about the entire experience and the great time Bob and Sarasota Paddleboard Company provided us.

“Wonderful day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Rang bob early one morning as we had to do it that same day and I thought this may be a problem as some companies we looked at needed to book one day in advance. But no, Bob said come on down to lido key later that morning and so started the best experience of our vacation so far! Great equipment and tuition from Bob and such a beautiful location at Lido Key. We have a sixteen year old son and a thirteen year old daughter and we all had a brilliant time - 10 out of 10! Will tell all our friends back home in rainy London and would strongly recommend anyone looking for great family fun to try SUP and Bob is the man! Dave Carter and family from London.
