About

 

Welcome to the Amelia Island Paddle Surf Company. I am Bobby Greene, founder and lead guide. I want to briefly introduce myself and the company.  I grew up as an Army brat and lived across the US and in Europe. Spending the bulk of my childhood in Georgia, I attended the University of Georgia earning a bachelor and masters degree in environmental health and ethics. I was also a member of the Georgia Bulldog football team. Go Dawgs!

 

I have been visiting Amelia Island  as a vacation destination since the mid 1990s. My family was fortunate enough to move to Amelia Island permanently back in 2012.  As an avid surfer, freediver, kite surfer and paddler, I like to think of myself as a true waterman in every sense of the word. Calling Amelia Island our home together with my in-depth knowledge of the environment and passion for the outdoors Amelia Island Paddle Surf Company was born.  

 

It is our mission to share, celebrate, and preserve all this wonderful island has to offer from the deck of a standup paddle (SUP) board. With top of the line equipment and certified instructors and guides we strive to make your paddle boarding experience a memorable one. We hope you join us.

LESSONS 

$99 - 2 Hours

Learning to SUP is truly a beginning. It opens doors to a wide variety of paddling experiences from lakes, to rivers and marshes, from flat water to epic waves, and more. Paddle boarding is considered one of the best and most refreshing ways to stay fit. 

 

All our instructors are ACA SUP certified and experienced at teaching first timers. Your first SUP lesson will include paddling on calm, flat water to get you going.  Amelia Island is one of the best places to paddle board in Florida and has plenty of great places with perfect conditions for a paddle boarding lesson. We will supply a stable board, properly sized paddle, inflatable PFD belt, and a coiled SUP leash.

 

For each SUP lesson, you will start on the beach and learn about the equipment, proper technique, where to stand on the board and how to start. From there you will be on the SUP board and paddling in no time. Once on the board you will learn forward and sweeping strokes, stopping and bracing. When you are ready, we head out to do some exploring and sight seeing. Time spent on the board is key to becoming a proficient paddle boarder.

Yoga on a standup paddleboard is a natural transition for those seeking even further connection with nature and themselves.  The orange glow and calmness of sunrise while taking in the natural beauty of Amelia Island provide the perfect setting for a yoga session.  The paddle board intuitively provides a floating yoga mat too marvelous to ignore.  Looking for gentle flow yoga or perhaps a more physical challenge, you will find your needs met in our SUP yoga session. Our instructor is specifically trained to teach yoga on the SUP for a unique experience you cannot find in the studio.

Our standup paddleboards provide a stable base, yet just the right connection to feel the water beneath for a challenging and enjoyable yoga session.  You will be assisted by a seasoned SUP instructor during this session while our SUP yoga teacher will lead the session cueing adjustments as needed.

The session begins with a short paddle to our outdoor studio where we assist you in tethering your board to an anchor.  Once there, we conduct our SUP yoga session.  Each session lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours including the paddle to our outdoor studio.
