Owner description: SUP Lessons on St. John St. John with its beautiful beaches and warm water is the perfect place to learn to paddleboard. With a board you can get to those unspoiled places that cannot be reached by foot or car. It is best to start in a calm bay with little waves and winds. The basic technique (paddle stroke and turns) can be learned in 1-2hours. Everybody can do it, from 5 year old kids to 70 year old seniors. If you have paddled before or want to try it on your own, we also have high quality paddle boards for rent, you can do day rentals or weekly rentals. We also rent out snorkeling gear which you can add to the paddle board rental packages (we have the new Easybreath full face masks as well as traditional masks, snorkels and fins). Or go for a night paddle with our new LED night paddles!

“SUP St. John Makes Paddleboarding Easy”

Everything about this rental was made easy by Lucy's timely response and attention to detail. Steve dropped off the SUP as we were getting the rental car and the transfer couldn't have been more seemlees. They even offered to drop it off at the villa, if we didn't hook up in Cruz Bay.

The price was reasonable, and the gear functioned perfectly. I'll definitely be using SUP St. John as my go to rental place when I'm back there.

“Great lessons and rentals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a 1/2 hour lesson in Chocolate Hole and although it was a little windy, we learned the basics and felt very comfortable. Our instructor was very knowledgeable. We then rented two paddle boards for two days and went to Francis Bay and Maho Bay. They were both excellent for paddle boarding. Then the company picked up the boards at our house. It was very easy and fun!

“"If Jennifer Anniston can do it, so can I!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

That was what I kept telling myself as I paddleboarded around St. John.

Lucy is a pro! She didn't just give us the boards and tell us to learn by watching her, she taught us about the boards themselves and taught us all the techniques before we got in the water. She even had us do warm ups!!! What a fun time! She even took pictures of us while we were out paddleboarding and emailed them to me. If you want to learn how to paddleboard then call Lucy, you won't be dissappointed.

SUP on St. John was out of this world. The value, lessons, equipment and personal suggestions for where to start paddling were perfect. We had an amazing time. I think SUPing is the best way to see st john
