What our members say
My paddle instructor turned me on to this site when I told them I was ready going for a two week holiday and I wanted to paddle as much as possible. My vacation, being in the middle of winter this year (of course :), my prospects weren’t looking too good until I found a super awesome SUP retreat in Costa Rica with a buddy deal and it really was perfect!- Olivia R.
There is a TON of great info here. I have an iSUP in my trunk at all times (yes, I am that guy) and when the conditions look good I fire up the app to see what spots are close by and message a Pro to get their tips on where to go- Ethan G.
I paddle once or twice a week. It is my zen. I also live in an apartment and they won’t let me keep a board on my balcony. The Buddy Deals make my paddle budget go further but I also like to check out new places on the weekends so I’ve just been knocking SUP spots off my list using this site. I found a bunch of places that are new and I’m definitely going back!- Rebecca M.
