This 20 minutes turned into 30, which turned into 40 and we still hadn’t gotten boards. By the time we actually got given boards, we’d been waiting... More

I went back there with my girlfriend where we had a beautiful hour of Stand Up Paddling in the bay. Great crew of... More

The instructor was very helpful and patient with about 10 of us new paddlers- he certainly made us equipped and ensure that we are all safe. The whole experience was... More

The shop is populated of friendly and competent people. I just rented full equipment for a kiteboarding session. Price was really good and Quality of gear was the best you can find on the market. If you need anything related to water sport, this is the right place where to stop. No doubt :)
