    Amazing experience

    My children and myself loved the experience. The instructors are there to guide you through the techniques and help you if you lose your paddle and so on. If you are a first timer on paddleboarding, this is what you want with the instructors by your side. Excellent location, fantastic instructors and an amazing experience.

    Great value

    I strongly recommend Che as an instructor- having never even been on a paddle board before I fully expected to fall off a few times but he gives such clear and thorough guidance that learning becomes very easy and I was happily paddle boarding within the hour - fantastic value
