“Excellent tour and lesson”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Jarrod does an excellent tour/SUP lesson tailored to fit your abilities and ambition. He was easy to contact and schedule. I'm an SUP novice and did the two hour tour of the intracoastal waterway. Before heading onto the water Jay gave an orientation and lesson on technique that was just right, not long and drawn out, but everything I needed to get practicing and touring. More instructions came as we paddled and I got better (for example, lesson on land: how to stand, paddle, turn, get on board; on water: how to walk on the board, skim over sand in shallow water, progress to ocean paddling). He's knowledgeable of ecosystems, friendly and gives a great tour. I plan on doing another lesson with him on the ocean later in the season.

“Excellent Stand Up Paddling and Yoga!”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

My wife and I asked to have a SUP lesson as well as try a little Yoga while on the paddle boards. Jarrod accommodated our requests (usually only group Yoga on Saturdays) and we had a great experience. The equipment was top notch, and with a short lesson on the beach, we were off paddling up the sound. After finding a quiet spot, we used small anchors to keep us in place, and Caroline started a great Yoga class on the water. The yoga instruction was great, as Caroline started with easy movements to get us used to the paddle boards, and allowed us to try different levels of movements based on our comfort level. After a solid workout for about an hour, we paddled around and headed back to shore.

Overall, the professionalism, equipment, and service made for a unforgettable adventure. We'll definitely be back!
