Tony is a patient, kind and personable instructor. My friend and I are 50 somethings in reasonable physical shape. Tony had us up and paddle boarding in under an hour. That gave us time to explore the inner coastal waterway and enjoy the beautiful wildlife. We even saw a bald eagle! Be sure to wear sunscreen & bring your sunglasses. You should also pack along some cold water.

This was our first experience of Paddle Boarding. Tony our instructor was excellent. He explained and showed us the basics and got us up on the board in no time at all. He stayed with us the whole 2 hours encouraging us and showing how to improve your technique as you got more confident. A very enjoyable lesson. Tony is a great guy,if you haven't Paddle Boarded its great fun try it give Tony a call, highly recommended.

I had my first Paddle board experience using this company with my Brother and his Wife on a trip to Florida. We are no spring chickens so felt a bit apprehensive on the drive over! Tony our teacher soon put us at ease his instructions were absolutely first class, we spent a fantastic 2hrs in his care. We were all standing on our boards and paddling away in under 5mins still dry!!!! Great equipment lovely location for beginners fantastic tutor.

Called Tony in the morning and my wife and I met him at 2 pm. Very relaxed paddle up Curry Creek with just the three of us. Tony expertly guided us through the maze of oyster beds and was quick to point out wildlife. We had a great time and recommend Above Board Paddle Company very highly.

...thanks to Tony. When we arrived, all we had to do was get in the kayaks, and in minutes we were in paddling down Curry Creek. Tony is an all-round good guy, even gave us great tips for the best BBQ a in town, and recommendations for sunset drinks (besides Sharkey's). He has a passion for nature and the local area. Highly recommended!
