  • Action Kayak Adventures
    On father-son fishing trips, Bart Swab?s dad taught him not only how to cast his line but also how to treat the aquatic ecosystem surrounding him with respect. Now a licensed and insured guide, Swab helps other fisherman appreciate the open water?s beauty, helming kayak trips through Florida?s pristine saltwater marshes. After arming prospective kayakers with safety tips and familiarizing them with their fishing equipment, Swab guides lead paddlers into the water. They maintain a 3-inch draft that allows students in kayaks to sneak up on fish without having to glue sequins to their skin to look like scales. Kayakers can also gaze through binoculars at the diverse fauna roaming the area?s shores. Trips range from a half day to a full day, and for a more structured route, participants can opt for destination trips to seasonal hot spots, where they can search out fish such as black drum, sheepshead, and tarpon.

  • Daytona Beach Surfing School
    Though its name may imply that the shop deals only in boards, Daytona Board Store covers all the ocean-taming essentials you might need. Bouyant watercraft of all sizes cover the space, including surfboards, paddleboards, and bodyboards. The staff also crafts their own boards in the shaping room in back. And those are just the shop's specialties that don't involve getting wet. Surf camp gives kids a whole new perspective on their time in the ocean and surf teams for adults always lead to at least one participant lobbying for the team to be called the Sharks.

  • Surfs SUP
    Chris Patterson's first time on a standup paddleboard went the opposite of how most of his clients' first experiences go. "People don't think they can do it because it looks like a surf board, but once they do it, they're hooked," he said. But for Patterson, who had surfed Hawaii's waves for seven years, his first confident step onto a standup paddleboard resulted in immediately falling off. Hauling his humbled self back onto the board, he learned the proper stance, set to paddling, and began seeing the water in a whole new way. The upright stance, unlike surfing's crouched position, opened his vision to the all the water around him, including several feet away where dolphins crested beside his board. The versatility of the sport inspired Patterson to launch Surfs SUP when he moved back to Florida, where the coast and inland waters afford abundant recreation. During semi-private and private small group lessons, Patterson’s students may encounter water-dwelling creatures such as manatees and dolphins. He's even had clients take out rentals for a day of fishing and bring back catches such as a 45-pound amberjack and a very large bundle of seaweed. Claiming training certification from the American Council on exercise, Patterson also leads on-the-water fitness classes that include SUP Yoga and Paddle Fit, which he learned directly from the program's founder, Brody Welte. Additionally, Patterson organizes a competitive SUP racing team and leads youth camps, where he applies training techniques he learned from teaching kids with cerebral palsy and blindness how to surf.

  • North Florida Kiteboarding
    For those looking for a unique watersport experience, kiteboarding combines surfing, wakeboarding, and gliding in one action-packed experience. North Florida Kiteboarding's lessons begin on the beach, where instructors will work through a dry-run of paddling, standing, falling, and maneuvering to equip patrons for the steady sloshing of waves. Patrons also practice essential skills, cresting waves with the help of a kite’s gentle tug or the daily tides. Instructors critique form during in-water sessions, sharing tips on how to handle the waves’ unexpected changes and how to properly relaunch after falling. Lessons include complimentary refreshments and sunscreen, ensuring patrons safely enjoy their fun in the sun without wearing wetsuits filled with layers of concentrated ozone. In addition to kiteboarding classes and rental services, North Florida Kiteboarding offers surfing lessons, sells landboards and water-wear gear, and coordinates summer surf camps.

  • Kindermusik
    Listening to music from a young age does more than help someone dance well enough to get on the Jumbotron during basketball games. It can also improve a child's brain development, social skills, and emotional connections. The staff at Grow and Sing Studios make it their mission to aid in the development of children through a wide variety of age-appropriate classes. Instructors lead students through activities steeped in song and rhythm, from the parent-baby drumming in Kindermusik Village to the group sing-alongs during Music for Aardvarks. They also teach piano lessons.
