AOK Watersports’ team of advocates unveils a selection of paddleboards for guests to rent and use to skim along the surface of Georgia’s coastal waters. Before taking to the aquatic playground, paddling pairs equip themselves with hollow, easy-to-transport boards as well as oars, which are best used to propel over frothy spumes and ward off tickle-happy manatees. Wave riders can sit, kneel, or stand atop their watercraft as they catch glimpses of South Carolina's southeastern shores and Georgia’s Tybee Island. Bring along a friend and help each other spot the local wildlife, which may include schools of fish and crustaceans.
While tutoring students in the art of kiteboarding, Mike Campanaro and John Mapel of AOK Watersports are able to call upon a lifetime of wave-taming experience in a bounty of extreme sports, including power-kiting and windsurfing. Though the dedicated instructors specialize in kiteboarding, they also offer equipment, lessons, and rentals for activities such as land-kiting and paddleboarding. Two-hour land-kiting courses help beginners glean basics for handling kites or taking midnight shifts as bird walkers.
