The SUPari trip to Portugal was good value for money. From first contact Paul made the booking process simple and straight forward with plenty of information about what was included in the package. Throughout the build-up to the trip Paul kept us up to date with relevant information and was great at getting us enthusiastic about our up and coming adventures. Any questions we had about our stay were answered promptly. The accommodation for me was ideal. It was clean and homely and SUP surf relevant. There were lots of interesting books, magazines and videos to inspire us. There was plenty of hot water for showers, an area for washing and hanging wetsuits, access to a kitchen, large garden and barbeque area. Breakfast was simple and ideal with plenty to eat. Tiago chose a good selection of surf spots without too much traveling that worked with the forecasted conditions and also met the group needs. He also took us to a good selection of places to eat. The equipment was first class with a great selection of boards to use. It was also very clear from the start what the policy was in regards to damage and costs. Tiago and Pauls coaching was really helpful. The video analysis each day helped us identifying areas for improvement each day. The shared knowledge that they imparted to use throughout the week has given me more than enough personal skills to develop for the foreseeable future. I look forward to adding to these the next time we are out together. There was great craic among the group with many enjoyable days and evenings of laughs and banter. There was down time when we needed it and Ericeira is an ideal location for eating and nights out.

I spent the past two weekends doing the ASI level 1 and 2 SUP instructor courses and SUP Water Rescue. Paul is a fantastic teacher and has great knowledge of the sport. I really enjoyed the courses, they where very informative and I learnt a lot. Looking forward to getting stuck into SUP instructing.

Paul Byrne took a bunch of us (10 fabulous women & 3 great guys!!) on a memorable SUP trip to Slovenia in July 2016. We had six days of amazing SUP experiences all helped by our wonderful hosts in Ljubljana. We really got a feel for the rivers, mountains, lakes & coast of this beautiful country. It was an activity packed holiday & was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Paul planned a wonderful itinerary including transfers/accommodation/board hire etc all which contributed to a terrific experience. Looking forward already to the next trip!
