“A fantastic experience!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We wanna thank Jason and Sarah for a fantastic experience. We have been paddling in many places around the world and can insure that this location is one of the best! The owner and stuff are very friendly and helpful and the blue water together with several ship wrecks and sea turtle's a must see! Just rent a paddle SUP board, bring your snorkel and have a great time! Thank you!!! Larissa and Jan

“Complete your beach villa rental with a SUP!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

My family rented a villa for a week in Barbados. To compliment the experience of great people, incredible water and beautiful sunsets we rented 2 paddle boards from Paddle Barbados.

Sarah and Jason where absolutely wonderful. The reservations and payment process was super easy. They delivered the boards straight to the house and within minutes the family was off and running (er' paddling).

The addition of the SUPs gave the entire family (from 4 yrs to 70) a great way to enjoy the water and see things you may not see just walking on the beach.

I would strongly recommend renting SUPs on your vacation and I would insist on Paddle Barbados be your outfitter!

“First Timers”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We paddle boarded for our first time here. We paid $20 for 2 hours. It was very windy with big waves that day that made it just that much more interesting. They give you a 10 min instructions and then off you go. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen. Also a shirt if you scratch easily. It was a lot of fun and wish we could of done it more while we were there.

“Great Value, options, inventory, LOCATION!!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Ask for Jason. We are experienced SUP'ers and I was impressed with the depth, breadth, and quality of the boards, paddles, and other items.
The location is phenomenal, near the Hilton and Radisson and proximate to several wrecks and turtle locations. Get a fish sandwich next door at Cuz's. There is also a dive shop next to Paddle Barbados.

“The best place to learn to Paddle!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

My wife and I were visiting Barbados and we wanted to learn a new water sport. Jason and Paddle Barbados team gave us a great Stand-Up Paddling experiences! They have a nice selection of boards, paddles and other equipment and of course excellent chilled out staff. The first time we went, Jason gave us an overview of basic paddling techniques and safety instructions on land before hitting the water. After couple of paddling experience, we grew in confidence and started doing Yoga on boards as well as surfing attempts. The water at Pebble beach is clean and calm basically to die for and on frequent occasion, we spotted beautiful Turtles as we paddled across the lagoon. If you are visiting Barbados, I would certainly recommend that you visit Paddle Barbados and enjoy the best sun set on the Island while on a board in the middle of the water :)
