We made a booking and enjoyed a fun hour on the water with our two boys (six and seven) they enjoyed it! Owner manager was a little grumpy?

The paddle boarding was fun, when arrived the Service was great and very helpful. The instructor was easy to understand and made sense. Can't wait to come back and try surfing.

Used GRAW for a SUP lesson and loved it. All kit provided and was in good condition, instructor Gem was excellent and a great teacher too. Had a blast paddling up and down the Anglesea river, would totally go again.

My children aged 9 and 15 participated in this activity twice. The fact that they wanted to go back after the first time means they rate it highly. We were even planning a 3rd session but... beach was closed due to some marine life sighting.More
