I have always wanted to try Standup paddle boarding, but am rather nervous. I shouldn't have worried as the entire experience was perfect. The reception staff are friendly and welcoming and Robin, my instructor was very reassuring. I went from knees to feet on the board with ease, obviously with Robin alongside. And was manoeuvring the board confidently due to his calm manner. I can honestly say it was the best hour I have spent in a long time and will definitely be back for more. This venue is wonderful as there is a lagoon for initial instruction and practise but is beside the sea for the next stage.
Fantastic course to get you on the water and gaining confidence regardless of your experience. Thanks so much for another great experience.
I wanted to say a huge thank you to Harriet for the great SUP lesson. Harriet was fantastic at keeping us engaged and helped us all get going despite my early exit into the water! She soon fixed my balance issues and we all had a great lesson.
My daughter had a lesson with Sian at the Lagoon last week, learning to paddle board, which she absolutely loved. The staff were really friendly and put her at ease and she was soon standing on the board and feeling confident. I would highly recommend the Lagoon to any learner and all the children were having a great time there. Thanks to everyone concerned!
