“I just wanted to say a big thank you for a great SUP lesson at Narrabeen Lake this Saturday. The 2 instructors were very well informed and very professional. I came to you in late 2003 to learn to surf and thought I would try you again, 9 years later for a SUP lesson. I am glad I did! Please pass on my thanks to the guys.” – Aubrey N – 2013
