Best family activity ever! Anyone can do it! Linc is a great teacher and guide. My family had such a great time and they are all asking when are we going again. Linc made it so fun and entertaining that the time just flew by. If you have never done SUP before, please book with Linc. I promise you will not be disappointed. Beautiful views! Linc, thank you so much for making it an experience my family will remember forever!

We met Linc for the SUP tour on Tallulah Falls and had a great time! Our family was mixed with first-timers and experienced paddleboarders, and we all had the opportunity to go at our pace. It can be a great workout or leisure paddle. The kids loved stopping for swimming, climbing up a small waterfall and jumping off rocks. Linc took photos of us and sent them, which was awesome. And Rio the pup was an added bonus! We’ll definitely be back next year.

We were looking for an outdoor activity (other than hiking) while staying at Black Rock Mountain State Park. I came across the information for Stand Up Paddle Boarding. I contacted Linc by email from his website and he promptly called me back. We were able to arrange for an excursion at Tallulah Falls (on the lake). The weather was fantastic, as was the water temp. We had a great time! All three of us had been on SUP's before, but not on a lake setting. Linc was fantastic in providing information and training. The equipment provided was first class and everything was such a great experience. I highly recommend giving him a call and setting up a trip. We can't wait until our next time on the water!

We had an amazing time going stand up paddle boarding with Linc on Tallulah Falls Lake last week. I was worried I wouldn't be able to do it but Linc was a great teacher and it was super easy. We were able to go around the whole lake which was beautiful, climb up a hidden waterfall and enjoy a nice snack. Tullulah Falls Lake was so calm and it was great they don't allow motorized boats so it was perfect for beginners. Linc is so knowledgeable, friendly and really knows the area. He made it a super relaxing day for us. We are hooked on this now and we cant wait to return next summer and book our next trip. Would definitely recommend Southern Water Trails to everyone!
