“Excellent paddle boarding lesson with Lauren”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2011

During our Florida trip we saw this paddle boards several times. It looked easy but I nvere thought it was that easy at is really is. After 5-10 minutes of instruction on land my 15 year old son and I had each our board and anet out together with Lauren. We spend almost 1 1/2 hour on the boards wit our falling in the water. I highly recommend using a few hours and get this amazing experience. We saw several animals and a see turtle showed up just in front of the board of my son. Lauren toke very good care of us and and explained things clearly (We are from Denmark). If i have the opportunity again I would for sure do this again. Greetings from Denmark ;-)

“Terrific Paddleboarding Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2011

A friend and I did both the one hour rental and a paddleboard pilates class. Both experiences were awesome! The first was a great way to have fun and get close to nature. The second was an excellent challenging, but fun workout. I highly recommend Paddleboard SWFL. Paddleboard Yoga is next on my list.

“She taught and hooked me!”

Lauren gave me a lesson in October. It was a private one at a location that I picked cause it was convenient for me. She was so patient and encouraging! I was immediately hooked and now own 2 boards.

“The most awesome experience ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2011

I went out with Lauren the owner and we were out for an hour. She is very patient and also knows all the wildlife around. I really have never had such a great time learning something and getting the workout of a life. I would recomend that anyone going to Ft. Myers, Sanibel, Naples etc. should check her out it will be well worth it.

“Great time! Beautiful trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

It was our first time paddleboarding but we had no problems standing up and staying up. Lauren is a great instructor and she is super knowledgeable about the area and local wildlife. We were able to get out in nature, work on strengthening our core and enjoy a little education in the process. Lauren was available when we wanted to plan our trip and the prices were more than fair. We had a great time and we look forward to our next trip out. It's beautiful out there!!!
