This was our first time SUPing and we had a dog. Surf the San Juans was very accommodating and gave a quick tutorial on how to use the SUP. We also got to bring our dog along which was a huge bonus!

Loved the whole experience! Anna was very friendly and helpful on the phone and in person. The paddle boards are easy to use, the price was very reasonable, and our whole family had a great time on the river! We would definitely do this again!
