“I did the 2 hour Beginner to SUP today. What a wonderful experience. Andy is such a good teacher, very experienced and very patient. It was lots of fun and the kit you use is really good with the added bonus of a beautiful setting in Llyn Padarn. Will definitely be back in the near future. Loved it”
