Reviewed June 14, 2013

Had blast paddle boarding for the first time! Trent our guide was awesome, he knew a lot about the wildlife that was in the area during paddle boarding lesson.This is for all ages! If I ever go back to myrtle beach, it's something I am definitely going to do again! Also ask him about Kona Red drink....so yummy :)

“Perfect rainy day!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

While the weather looked as if it might not cooperate, our guide/instructor, Trenton was not daunted. We figured since we'd planned on getting wet anyway, a little rain wouldn't hurt. He did a great job explaining what to do and literally in the first minutes, we were all up and paddling along. He was super helpful with helpful tips on correct form and technique. By the end of the session, I think it's fair to say we all felt confident and capable of doing this. It was a great morning. Thanks !

p.s. Also, thanks for having the Kona Red available .. it was great :)

“Great Time Paddleboarding”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Truly a great experience. The time spent on the water and enjoying nature on the waterway was a unique experience. Trent is a great instructor and a very positive individual. He was always patient, helpful, and great at establishing confidence in the sport. I would highly recommend Trent and paddleboarding to anyone looking for something to do on an afternoon off or as part of your Myrtle Beach vacation experience. It will leave you with great memories and a smile.
