“We vacation every year in Cocoa Beach and went to Sobe Surf for the first time last year. We had such an awesome time we went back again last week and had another amazing time. This time we saw dolphins and manatees on our SUP tour! What a great way to start your day and get in some exercise and sun while on vacation! We will definitely be returning to Sobe EVERY year!”
