We've been wanting to try stand-up paddle boarding for a while. I insisted we take a lesson and many local SUP places have a minimum age requirement that's still a few years away for my daughter. We were glad to find SurfSUP Adventures so we could try something new as a family.

There were ten people in our Labor Day Monday group for the Moraine State Park Eco Tour. Ian was fabulous. He was able to give everyone individual attention, got my daughter to paddle properly, and led us all in a slightly terrifying but super fun game of water dodge ball (the ball was a sponge).

Everything was first class from the online booking process to the promptly shared photo album after our tour. We hardly ever get pictures of all three of us together, so I appreciated that especially!

I did the Lake Arthur paddle over Labor Day weekend. Ian did an excellent job on a very busy day at the lake. He was professional, laid back, and extremely helpful. It was the perfect mix of learning and fun. I have never tried paddle boarding before and I felt totally comfortable. You must add this adventure to your "to do" list!

I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely do it again. This was only my third time on a paddleboard so I was a little nervous about going on the river, but Ian provided great instruction and made everyone comfortable, including the first timers in our party. This was a relaxing trip and a great workout as well.

We did the Lake Arthur paddle. Ian did an excellent job of getting us all familiar with what to expect, then stayed with us all through the entire ride, educating and informing us of all kinds of interesting stuff. He also took videos and pictures throughout the trip and sent them to us after, so that we could re-live the good times we had, and share them with friends. Thanks Ian!
