"Great Expectations"
A friend took me on my first SUP experience a few years ago - I was hooked. So when my family all got together from all over the globe for a reunion I wanted to plan a really fun time. I booked a private party River Paddle. Samantha was fabulous with quick communications and making all the arrangements. John was our guide/instructor as no one else in our group had ever gone paddleboarding before. He was great, made it very fun and easy. I would highly recommend New Smyrna Stand Up to anyone looking for a fun day. This is a top notch business, beyond our greatest expectations. Planning another paddle with them already.


This was the most fun we've ever had in New Smyrna Beach! Ya' gotta try this!!!!

Peter and I thoroughly enjoyed our 1 1/2 hour lesson through the canals in New Smyrna Beach. Our instructor, John, was thoughtful, thorough, fun, informative, and right there the entire time. Half way into our sunset tour, he asked that we stop at an island where we took a water break, as he pointed out some of the flora, fauna, and marine life of the area. Great experience. We saw lots of wildlife. What a treat! I highly recommend it! I'm 57 1/2 and my husband is 71, and we both handled it quite easily. John is an excellent instructor!

I have nothing but positive things to say about New Smyrna Stand Up. Our guide was excellent, and very patient and encouraging. I would recommend this business to everyone, and I look forward to trying one of their Sunset Paddles.

wonderful....very informative and entertaining.......had a blast and would do again.....during our outing we had an experience where we were a little ahead of the group and heard a large splash behind us....just thought it was a boarder falling in yet it was a few dolphins swimming and diving all around us....we remained still and they gracefully swam right past us...was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had....thanks again !!!!

John is awesome. He was very helpful with instructions and our different levels of physical condition. I would recommend New Smyrna Stand up to anybody interested in trying this sport.

Samie & John, THANKS so much for the awesome paddle Saturday evening! It was a beautiful sunset, perfect conditions & the best part was seeing the rosette spoonbill at the end! John, your instruction was great, thanks for the pointers. Can't wait to do it again!

Dear Samie and John, 
I am sure Jack and I will always think back to the memorable experience you created for us this summer.  We had a world of fun but no doubt the best part was getting to know you and those wonderful, adorable, little aquatic twins.  The pictures were great and our whole extended family is enjoying them.  We look forward to bringing our whole clan back to paddle board with you when they visit here next summer. 
Very best regards, Jim Montgomery

This was the best paddle adventure we have experienced so far. Getting out in the channel and exploring the inns and outs was great. From the hammer heads to the manatees, it was an epic paddle. Thanks guys. New Smyrna Stand Up rocks. P.S. The shirt looks great.

John is the BEST! I didn't think I could do it, but he had me standing up and paddling in 5 minutes!

Karen Lattari

We (The Johnsons) had a great time yesterday with John. He was so knowledgeable about the area and encouraging with our 13 and 10 year old who were a little apprehensive at first about paddling (mostly because it was freezing and we are "true" Floridians) but John was encouraging and patient and the day was awesome. Looking forward to going back again! Thanks again John!

"Much much more!"
New Smyrna Stand Up is more than just an ordinary paddle board experience. This husband and wife run company goes above and beyond to accommodate every customer. I was down visiting my boyfriend and we used them twice during our week at the beach. Our second trip was the sunset wine and cheese. We were afraid that they were going to cancel the trip because we were the only 2 signed up....but they didn't, and we had a private trip :) I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering paddle boarding!

Everyone must try this. After watching for the past 2/3 summers and saying "I wish I could do that"---"that would be fun"---" I will do that one day " well Instead of Hoping and wishing I just started DOING!!! I am having the time of my life at 47 years young --- what a sense of accomplishment!!! I started just cruising and now I am surfing---even while being at times quite scared. I am in love with SUP.

Sharron Simmons

Wow what a great experience. All I asked for was the rosette spoonbill and you produced! Loved every minute of the tour. Thanks for everything.
