I have always wanted to try SUP and Anne was a wonderful, attentive instructor. All 5 in our party successfully paddled around Haviland Lake. SUP is challenging, but falling in a lake isn't too bad! (Yes, the voice of experience!) I would highly recommend this company for SUP beginners. If you are experienced, they will deliver boards to you.

This was our first time SUPing and we had a dog. Surf the San Juans was very accommodating and gave a quick tutorial on how to use the SUP. We also got to bring our dog along which was a huge bonus!

We did a two day two hour lesson with Anna on whitewater SUP and river surfing and it was an awesome time. We came from AZ with some basics on river running and we wanted to build our fundamentals and create a base to take back home. Anna is a great instructor and we learned so much! She is very... More

Went to lake Haviland as the rivers are too high and fast for beginners. Drew delivered our boards on time and gave us a quick overview of how to SUP as none of us ever did it before. This was the perfect location for newbies to try out paddle boarding - no motor boat wakes to deal with.

So much fun! Zero pressure and Drew was a great teacher! I had been wanting to SUP for a while and this was by far the best deal in town. There were five of us in the group and only one girl had tried paddle boarding before. We cruised up the river and it was all very relaxed and kept... More

So I'd been fascinated by SUP for a while, but I never tried it. I figured my vacation trip to Durango was the perfect chance to try it out. Thanks to Drew and Anna, I had THE BEST time on the river. I'm hooked! Anna and Drew are the real deal - they know their stuff and run a super... More

I found a deal online for a two hour paddleboarding lesson for two. I took my 7 year old and we had a fabulous time! We immediately ran into some locals who were aware of Anna's reputation as a kick-a&$ boarder and said how lucky we were to have her as an instructor. They weren't wrong. She was very laid... More

Loved the whole experience! Anna was very friendly and helpful on the phone and in person. The paddle boards are easy to use, the price was very reasonable, and our whole family had a great time on the river! We would definitely do this again!

My husband, friend and I rented paddle boards from STSJ yesterday. Anna met us at the pick up point and was very nice, helpful and informative. We had a meeting time at 3 to return the boards but a storm blew in so we called Anna early to come meet us if possible. She was literally there within minutes of... More

My boyfriend and I went stand up paddle boarding with Anna and she was awesome! I have a fear of rushing water and she was so patient and informative! She really made me feel comfortable with her demeanor and her knowledge. The river really isn't rushing that strongly when you go upstream and it is very safe. She taught us... More
