Had an amazing time, and Vince was a great SUP teacher, as well as knowledgeable with the wildlife and history of the area. I've already recommended this to my friends and family!

Great beginners and intermediate tour with Vince at Avila Beach Paddlesports! We had a wonderful time, and learned so much about kayaking, nature and the marine life. Would definitely recommend. We plan on going back to do some of the more advanced tours :)
