The wind was howling and the rain pouring for my first experience paddleboarding, but this had to be one of the most fun events of the summer. Portballintrae is beautiful and an great place for a beginner. Jennifer is an excellent instructor and covered all of the necessary details to make a novice feel confident. We ended the session with some games that has left a permanent smile on our faces. Great time, well worth the money, and highly recommended. Lastly, don't let any bad weather stop you from paddleboarding. Once you get the wetsuit on you won't feel cold.

This was my first time paddle boarding and I'm so glad I did it - it was brilliant fun! My main reservation was about feeling cold in the water but the wet suits and booties provided,kept me warm.
John was an excellent instructer, he was very clear and attentive and the structure of the class was well thought out and loads of fun.
The Portballintrae area is beautiful and I would definitely recommend this class, I'll be booking my next lesson soon!

Just back from a weekend in North Coast for my birthday, and as a B'day treat my wife booked me a SUP lesson with John from Surf SUPNI. Arrived for my one to one lesson with the sun shining and the water flat calm - perfect! Met John, who immediately put me at ease and we got straight down to it. A few simple exercises on the jetty and away we went onto the water. With John's expert tutorials, we step through each stage efficiently and in no time at all I was paddling across the bay. Brilliant experience and real sense of achievement. Could imagine the craic with a small group doing this, Fun exercises and games make sure you are away challenging yourself. Highly recommended for all to try this, you can take your time and learn at your own pace, but you will at least be standing up on a board at the end of it - something not always possible after a wave surfing lesson. Excellent location with convenient parking and great equipment to use. Recommend this to all.
