Owner description: Glide down the stunning Chichester canal while gaining excellent tuition, let your mind relax and unwind in a beautiful location. Book a two hour guided tour on the canal using the latest inflatable paddle boards, just bring a towel and leave with a smile.

Wow what an amazing company if I could give more than a 5 star rating I would. Tony and Gemma are amazing at what they do, they are both friendly and make you feel relaxed immediately. This course is very informative as well as hands on. We learnt so much about equipment, clothing and what to do in certain situations. They get everyone involved both mentally and physically. I highly recommend everyone who is into SUP to go on this course. We feel really confident to travel and try out different places with our boards armed with everything we have been taught.

A few of us from Shoreham Harbour SUP group came along to a safety & rescue session run by Gemma & Tony at TJ Boardhire. It was very informative and great fun. I can highly recommend that anyone new to SUP should do this session. Looking forward to getting out on the water with our group and passing on the new skills we have learnt ! Thanks guys.

T J Boardhire gave us a lovely 2 hours lesson in SUP boarding and we were standing and paddling up the Chichester canal within 30 minutes!Gemma and Tony are patient and knowledgeable teachers and we can see how you can get hooked on this sport with lots more to learn and more adventures ahead. We loved it and can't wait to go again.

Myself and my two teen children had a wonderful 2 hour paddle boarding lesson with Tony. As complete novices we were a little nervous, fully expecting to spend some time in the canal. As it turned out Tony is an excellent instructor , calm, positive , and encouraging . We all had a brilliant time and managed to stay out the wet stuff and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. After learning the basics on our journey along the canal we were all really pleased with how we progressed and managed to have some races and play tag with each other on the boards ! Both myself and my children will definitely be paddle boarding in the future thanks to our great experience today .

I felt a little daunted going on my own for an intro lesson but Gemma was so friendly and engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Despite being in my late sixties, with Gemmas guidance I was soon up on my feet and paddling. Various techniques taught to help with improving stability and safety. This is definitely an activity for all ages and I will certainly be back with some of my family and friends.
