“best experience of my Laguna Beach trip”
Reviewed May 14, 2013
I decided to try stand up paddle board for the first time and I am so glad I found Nancy through tripadvisor! It was like I was boarding with an old friend, she was so friendly and knowledgable.The best part was that when we were over by the mouth of the harbor we saw a pod of dolphins playing around. We paddled over and they swam around and under our boards and were just as curious about us as we were about them. What an amazing experience.
“It was great family fun!”

Nancy was a great instructor. We were a group of four with varying abilities and she was able to tailor the lesson to each of us so we all had a good time. First time stand up paddling with SUP Fitness Laguna did not disappoint!

If you love paddle boarding already, but are unsure of how to use your skills to get a great workout, then try our SUP Fit Class; focusing on creative ways to use your paddle board to get the best high intensity workout. Our class combines fitness,yoga and paddleboard techniques to strengthen and tone. Being that it is all about balance, SUP basically works every muscle in your body. Not only are you working your legs, but you're also working your arms and core. You'll be improving your fast-twitch muscles (crucial for balance and reaction time), which makes SUP a great cross-training workout since almost all sports/exercises rely on balance and core strength. SUP fit will help you add a new dimension to your old training routine and may create a whole new sport to challenge you.
