It was my first time doing SUP and the host of my experience was a great teacher. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed. After 15 minutes of practice, I felt confident and could have continued exploring the river for hours. This turned out to be more a lesson which was different than my expectation. If you are experienced in SUP, this probably isn't the right experience for you but overall, I enjoyed it!
