Celebrating 14 years of teaching surf and stand up paddle in Florida!
I had family in town from out of state, and we saw people stand up paddle boarding. We all agreed we wanted to try it. I called SoBe Surf and two hours later we were on our own PRIVATE tour in the Banana River. They knew right where to go to see manatees up close and personal. What a great day! They made my family’s trip extra special! Thanks for the great memories 🙂
I loved my experience at this family and friends business. My boyfriend and I went on the “mucho manatee” tour on our stop at Port Canaveral during our cruise and we so shocked to actually see so many manatees in the wild! Our board guide/teacher was so patient and shared a lot of interesting information about the island and wild-life there. It was a huge highlight of our cruise. Thank you!
I had the pleasure of meeting Girard through a board sale. I was looking to buy a short SUP, and Girard had just the board I was looking for. When I went with my friend to his shop to look at the board, he and his wife (plus his very sweet dog Kona) were very accommodating. Girard not only showed me the board of interest, but also took me on a tour of the lagoon so that I could demo the board before purchasing it. During the demo, he pointed out the wildlife in the lagoon–we even saw dolphins and manatees! Girard gave several tips along the way on how to utilize the board to catch the best surf. In the end, I bought the board; Girard never pressured me and gave me an excellent deal for the quality and condition of the board. The board was a blast sup surfing in the ocean, and I can’t wait to take it river surfing in Canada. Thanks, Girard!
