Thanks to improper equipment and a lack of professional training, Nanci Grenier Boutet endured four years of splashes and bruises before she could reliably stand up on her surfboard. Nanci founded Aquaholics to save others from a similarly waterlogged fate, and it was not long before she began to make waves in Maine’s dedicated surfing community. Nestled in a space that once housed a church, her surf shop has earned local renown for its selection of quality wetsuits and beach gear available to rent or buy.

When Nanci and her staff aren’t outfitting wave riders with professional equipment, they take to the ocean themselves during year-round surf and paddleboard lessons. CPR-certified instructors coach boarders of all skill levels in private surf sessions or group classes capped at three students per instructor. Large parties can opt for abbreviated surf lessons with a less-structured approach that lends itself to mild mayhem. Alternatively, standup paddleboard lessons impart various techniques for mounting boards and steering clear of siren rap battles during guided tours of Maine’s waterways.

Customer Reviews

Tucker was such an awesome instructor. There were about 6 of us in our group, and he did a fantastic job of tailoring his instruction style and info to each of us, based upon our learning type and what we were each doing on our boards. For me, he clued in that I like technical, specific instruction, which is what he gave me, and low and behold I was surfing by the end, and I overheard his instruction to another student who just need confidence before getting really technical, so he adapted his style to her accordingly. Tucker was a great instructor with the perfect balance between being approachable, knowledgable, and able to explain things in a way that were easy to understand to the budding surfer. He also seemed genuinely excited for us when we would get up on our boards. I had an awesome time and I would love to come back again! Thanks, Tucker and Aquaholics!
