“Great Fun for Families with Teens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We were in Holden Beach for the week and wanted to try something new. Jarrod & Will were excellent instructors and accommodated our schedule on short notice, as well as giving us some good advice on what to wear, as it was a bit cool (beginning of April, 55-65 degree F).

To my amazement, nobody fell in, despite some inadvertent bumping and our newby status. The paddleboards (in good shape) were very stable and Jerrod & Will had us start on inland water where it was calm. Both guys were very supportive of our group of three 14-15 year-old girls and mid-40's dad.

I highly recommend Wrightsville SUP and paddleboarding in general to anyone looking for a good fun outdoors, a good activity to do with family, or just a good workout.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We took a lesson with Jarrod who was really helpful. He made us really comfortable and was a great guide for the area. It was extremely windy when we first started so he suggested finding another time for us to finish. He was very flexible and was willing to work with our schedule so everything worked out great. I would highly recommend using Wrightsville SUP and can't wait until I can go again!

“As a first timer SUP boarder this instructional tour was excellent and refreshing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

My wife and I had a great time going on our first SUP adventure with Wrightsville SUP. Went with an instructional tour since it was the first time, and in no time were up on the boards touring the Wrightsville waterway. The guide provided good, clear instructions, and gave advice along the way. The guides are extremely knowledgeable about the sport, as well as entertaining and professional. The adventure was everything it was hyped up to be plus more! Definitely recommend Wrightsville SUP.

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We did an SUP lesson for our girls weekend trip to the area. Was so much fun. Beautiful way to see the area. It actually took more work/energy than we expected, which was cool. We earned our fish tacos and beer afterwards! Will was our instructor and was very helpful and laid back. Made us feel at ease. Jarrod was great to work with in terms of booking the trip and managing the details of payment, photos, etc. . . Very responsive. Super guys, super experience. I would definitely do it again and reccomend it to others.

“SUP Instruction Lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

The lesson was really great, with lots of time to SUP. Jarrod was professional, and very informative about the area, nature, and sea life as well. We took a brief break about half way through the two hour lesson, which was much needed. For first time paddle- boarders, I would highly recommend using Wrightsville SUP! It's a wonderful way to see a sunrise also!
