Notable Quotes

“I had a great time at the Carolina Paddleboard Co. during several visits. Friendly advice, recommendations on local paddling spots and cool weather clothing. Good selection of SUP boards, clothing, and accessories.”
“There were three of us that were first time paddle boarders and we received excellent instruction from the staff. We got our intro lesson of 10-15 mins and were off to paddle board around Harbor Island for 2 hours. What a great workout and beautiful day!”
“My wife and I have wanted to try out the Stand Up Paddle Boards and finally decided to try it. We  always wondered how difficult it was. Since we were first timers, they took the time to explain best techniques and how to start on your knees or sitting to get the feel. With their guidance we were off just rowing from a kneeling position then working up the nerve to stand. It was fairly easy transition and found the balance quickly. The Great Staff at Carolina Paddle Board was awesome.”
