It wasn't a great experience. I would have appreciated the lady running this to tell us the water was too choppy for this to work. We ended up just basically hugging our boards the whole time. Also, I didn't appreciate her telling us we had to carry our boards back for her in order for her to email us pictures.
Cathy and Miles were great! We had a great group, and they made sure we were all up and going within the first half hour. Cathy also have a great lesson on water conditions and how they affect your experience. She made sure we knew what to look for on the water, and what to stay away from. Well worth it!

About East Coast Paddleboarding
When viewed from a distance, a person riding a standup paddleboard might bear a passing resemblance to the gondoliers who ferry travelers through the waterways of Venice. But these paddlers have the entire ocean to call their canal, and are spared the indignity of wearing striped shirts. East Coast Paddleboarding’s crew outfits adventurers with the equipment and experience necessary to tackle the waters surrounding Tybee Island, whether embarking on calm floats or catching shore-bound waves. The outfitters can also serve as guides, leading tour groups to a nature preserve accessible only by water and pointing out the cresting fins of curious dolphins.
