“You've gotta try Standup Paddleboarding!! What a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I took a private lesson in standup paddleboarding and I'm hooked!! Jim was a fabulous instructor. We established a time/place on the beach to meet, he brought all the equipment we needed (he was there early), and he explained everything we were going to do before we even got out on the water. He was patient, prompt, encouraging, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about the sport. I felt totally comfortable with him and his instruction -- I didn't even fall off! I loved it so much that the next day I rented a board for the morning (he drops off/picks up the equipment) and paddled within 15 feet of dolphins. It doesn't get any better than that! Thanks Jim for such a memorable/wonderful introduction to this sport. I highly recommend Beach Bum Surf & Supply!
