Last week I was on vacation with my kids on the Gold Coast. I contacted Go Ride a Wave and booked a Stand Up Paddle boarding lesson for me and my two girls Olivia (10) and Isabella (7) at the Surfers Paradise location. We had never tried it before and we thought it looked pretty cool. We were met by Dan (Hookie) and from the very first moment we were relaxed and ready to go. My girls felt at ease and really enjoyed the lesson. Hookie kept coaching and praising the girls efforts and they stood up first go and kept at it for the rest of the lesson. He was also kind enough to take footage using my GoPro which shows all of us standing and paddling way together.
On the flight home I asked the girls what was the best part of the holiday, thinking perhaps they would say Movieworld or Dreamworld or even the waterslide at our hotel. Both answered saying it was the SUP! They joked saying, “Wasssup?” “we are SUP! That’s wassup!”
Once again, thank you to Hookie and thanks for the memories. I will recommend you to all and will be back to any one of your locations in our future vacation travels.
