Wow - what an inspiring set up. Location is everything! I had always wanted to try SUP boarding and Scott made it so easy and so much fun for all of our family - even the 7 year old was up and paddling in no time! We loved it so much that we invested in a board for ourselves and already are putting it to much use - bring on the rest of the Summer and next step SUP yoga!!
Idyllic surroundings and professional tutoring from a fabulous team. A hidden gem.
