Awesome, it’s great you felt safe and even better that it won’t be your last SUP experience. Thanks for joining us at the beach, let’s hope your next experience is equally as good.

The staff are lovely and helpful. When they couldn't find my booking - it was no problem and they sorted it out in a few minutes and let me use an expired voucher. Really accommodating.
