I booked a lesson for my son who had never paddle boarded before - the teaching and care given by the staff at Ocean Sports Centre was fantastic - he had a great time - thanks. A special thanks to Hattie who was his trainer.

I booked a paddle boarding beginners session for me, my partner and my dad. Taryn was our instructor and was incredible - really friendly and explained things perfectly. It was an amazing experience from start to finish and cannot rate it highly enough.
