It looks so hard yet this sport is remarkably easy on flat water, particularly if you are shown the correct techniques and are on the right board. We are confident that all of our clients will be successfully stand up paddling by the end of their first lesson.
This sport works every single muscle in your body the whole time you are balancing on the board and yet you don't feel like you are doing anything at all. As a bonus the paddling motion builds core strength and helps turn that keg back into a six-pack!

Jervis Bay is a huge mass of water approximately 3 times the size of Sydney Harbour and its surrounding land mass projects approximately 16km at its most eastern point further to sea than the rest of the coast line.
The Bay is constantly being washed through by oceanic currents and for this reason it has earned a reputation amongst game fisherman along the east coast of Australia and probably the world as the best land based game fishing spots in the world for Marlin.
With a healthy population of pilchards and slimy mackerel and with the bait fish stocks rapidly increasing since all professional netting was shut down JB is a haven for predators feasting on the abundant bait. The Bay Sustains a resident pod of Bottlenose Dolphins,A Colony of Fairy Penguins ,a Seal colony and Migrating Humpback Whales.
Offshore there are 3 Canyons along the continental shelf with the middle canyon, known as the Kink being only 10 nautical miles form the mouth of the bay. There is an abundance of bait fish on these canyons with plenty of game fish hot on their tails.
Each year there are many marlin faught and tagged and many more faught and lost with some very large blue marlin being hooked regularly but few are landed. Many stories are told of the ones that got away!! The yellowfin and albacore fishing is also great with the yellowfin only really being absent for 5 to 6 months of the year.
We are truly blessed to be able to fish and experience a place so abundant in Marine Life.
