SoBe Surf gave us a great first time paddle boarding experience. The guide explained how to start and stay balanced. The water wasn't all that deep for most of the trip, so you could just jump off if you felt yourself starting to fall. Life jackets were available but only required for younger children. The guide told us lots of... More

Not all kayaks are created equal and neither are businesses. As business owners ourselves, we know how important customer satisfaction is and Girard does too!

Girard the owner, was super nice. We booked a kayak ecotour on the Banana River (Sykes?) river/lagoon. It was just okay. Jordan was our tour guide and it seemed like she could have known a bit more about the natural history of the region (it was an ecotour after all). I love to have a guide give as much info... More

The owner was very accommodating, kind, and knowledgeable. Our tour guide was friendly, funny, and took us to see the manatees that came right up to the paddle boards. Tour guide even took pictures so we can enjoy the time more. Highly recommended. For beginners up to experienced paddle boarders. Quality boards.

Girard judges a lot of surf contests and has a unique and insightful perspective to help you improve your surfing.

I visited Girard's store to demo a paddleboard, and ended purchasing one that same day from him. He also does rentals, tours, lessons. After renting paddleboards all over Florida numerous times, I decided to buy one.

We have paddle boarded in various places across the world and have our own boards. We decided we would like to see some wildlife particularly manatees and get away from the Disney areas and we were not disappointed. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and took us further south where the manatees were for this time of the year.... More
