Delving into the heart of 'Get Up & Get On Paddleboarding,' owner Deborah passionately articulates the essence of their paddleboarding experiences:

"I have been paddleboarding for 10 years now and love introducing this exciting sport to local people and visitors alike. Getting on a paddleboard can make us react positively to water and being in the sea can calm and connect us. We have a blue mind and it's perfectly tailored to make us happy in all sorts of ways that go far beyond. Whether it is relaxing in the surf or floating quietly in the ocean, I feel being part of Get up & Get on paddleboarding will introduce you to a fun healthy way of life and find freedom to explore the coastline and its marine life whilst always being happy physically and mentally. I am keen to give people this experience paddleboarding in and around our scenic waterways."
