Roberto took me and my friend on a SUP (stand up paddle) tour. He was punctual and very friendly and helpful. Even though we were not experienced, he had patience to instruct and help us get our "sea legs" and balance. He emphasized relaxing and enjoying the experience. While on the sea, he had an eye out for bigger waves... More

He was very calm and efficient in fact so much so that although I am prone to vertigo I ended up walking along precipitous ridges without freaking out.
