"Took a paddle boarding class. We received excellent instruction, then were off exploring the lake in no time. Both the shop owner and instructor were very friendly and helpful. Paddle boarding is a lot easier and more fun than I expected. I highly recommend both paddle boarding on Lake Norman in general and renting or taking a class from My Aloha in particular. Great experience!"

"This was my first time on a stand up paddle board. My wife gave me a private lesson at Aloha Paddle & Surf for my birthday and I had a blast. Had an amazing time with my instructor Matt, who took time to explain everything before we hit the water and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Could have stayed out there for hours.
Highly recommend My Aloha to anyone whether its your first time, your visiting the lake looking for fun activities or if your just looking for to get away for an afternoon and enjoy the water"

"Our guide, Matt, was attentive without hovering, gave us a great short lesson and interacted with us with just the right mix of humor and leadership!! He made this experience so much fun for three old ladies wanting to try paddle boarding ! We will definitely tell our friends, and we will come back!"

"Aloha Paddle is a blast! The first time I signed up was with a Groupon. Figured it was a great way to be introduced to Paddle boarding and it did not disappoint. Great instructor, lesson and fun day on LKN. Second time we rented boards and had another great experience. Highly recommend. Fabulous service, prices and experience!"

"We just returned from a first time, week long Lake Norman vacation. Because our vacation house rental came with few amenities, I knew we'd need kayaks and an SUP to keep our extended family focused on beautiful Lake Norman.
The vacation rental office offered a few suggestions for weekly rentals. All were steeply priced and were really focused on motor boat rentals. My Aloha Paddle was the answer! They offer a reasonably priced 5 day rental with delivery and pick up. Rob was personable and professional. When he heard we'd be paddling with our kids ages 10 and 13, he made sure to outfit us with smaller kayaks and brought a selection of life jackets. Even my tentative 6 year old nephew and his 71 year old poppa enjoyed the kayak in our small cove. The whole family couldn't wait to try the SUP and everyone loved it.
My Aloha Paddle offers terrific service at a great price point."

“Yoga on the water was true bliss! My Aloha has such a peaceful environment with top notch client service. I drove an hour to experience paddle boarding at my aloha and will be a regular.
- Sarah from Winston-Salem, NC
"My family and I had an excellent time paddle boarding with My Aloha! The lake is beautiful and the shop sits right on the lake, so it's such easy access in and out. And so much to look at out on the water. The staff was great! They even had a smaller board for my boys to paddle on their own, which they enjoyed. Totally recommend a trip there! They also sell boards, and the ones they have on display are just beautiful."
