Hi Ryan, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I started in a corporate setting with a vacation rentals business and found that the company I was working for didn't focus on customer service so we created our own beach gear rental company right on the beach and we added activities like a sunrise paddle excursion back in 2014 and people loved it. We fell in love with SUP during the process and because we had such great feedback from our sunrise tour - we offer lot's and lot's of pics for each tour guest and people love it! - so we focused on SUP tours and now offer tours in a dozen locations each with a sunrise, sunset, and night time tours
Tell us a little more about your experience with paddleboarding
I'm a coach for SUP special Olympics on our local team and work with autistic, and down syndrome participants. Personally, I love SUP camping multi-day excursions from half day, full day and multi-day adventures in local rivers, springs, and aquifer systems
Location Overview - Tell us about your water environment
We are lucky because we have open water on the gulf side and inland water, like lakes and river fed dune lakes, on the other side. It's hard to describe the water but it's called the emerald coast for a reason. The white as snow quartz sand and emerald green waters is what really makes our location special - you have to see it. Plus you don't need a wetsuit - lower 60's in the coldest part of winter and 80 degree water in the summer!
Do you have any signature services or paddle activities?
We have several - the Miramar beach day time tour is out features one of several man-made reef systems that we go check out at sunrise for the most divers wildlife (great for snorkeling!); Our sunset Dune lake tours are river feed lakes that back right up to trees and grass and go right into the bright white sand dunes - the lake experience and beach/gulf all in one, add the sunset, and you have a fantastic tour! Our Fireworks paddle tour is seasonal with Spring break and it picks back up May 21st through August every Tuesday. Can't beat paddling under the fireworks display at Baytown warf!
