We wanted to give stand up paddle boarding a try. These guys were great. Just turn up and hire. They have all the gear, give a quick but thorough briefing before you on your way. Can do 30min or hour rentals.

Rebecca is a great teacher. Teaches you the basics first and in clear concise steps so you learn quickly how to get going on a paddle board. Good fun and good exercise too. Loved being on the water.
