"Stand up paddle boarding is more than just a sport, its a way to see and explore our natural surroundings, a tool to travel and connect with nature, a state of mind, a lifestyle. It teaches us how to respect and appreciate our natural surroundings."

Brilliant experience! Tracy is a wonderful instructor. She explained the basics before we got in the water, gave clear instructions in a warm and friendly way and really put us at ease. The lesson was fun and relaxed. Tracy supported and encouraged us throughout - everyone in our group was standing in the first few minutes of getting in the water, and the session was at a pace we were all comfortable with. It was perfect for beginners. We loved the session and would highly recommend it!

We, a group of 3 had Tracy as our instructor. She was fantastic and explained everything so well that we all were standing on the boards very quickly and confidently. Held in a safe environment, perfect for beginners. I would highly recommend.

We so enjoyed our 2 hour paddle boarding lesson. Tracy is lovely and was very clear in explaining the basics before we got into the water which helped my nerves. She helped each of us when we needed it, such as how to get back on when you’ve fallen off (!), different ways to turn and how to relieve my feet when they went to sleep! Would highly recommend - a brilliant experience and great fun - thanks Tracy!

Great Experience! Health and Safety explained fully! Perfect location! Tracy was a great, enthusiastic instructor and didn’t mind going at a slower pace for the not so confident! Great end to holiday!

I really enjoyed the paddle boarding session. I have paddle boarded before but not for many years so this was an excellent refresher. The location was perfect - calm sea and warm water - and our teacher gave us great tips and encouragement.
