Your guide

My name is Sebestyén Tóth, I come from Hungary, and I have lived in Bovec since 2012. It was my passion for water sports, which led me to this beautiful place.

As a kid, I was racing as a sprint kayaker. Later my dad took me for a whitewater kayak trip to Austria, and I absolutely fell in love with it. After a few years, I became a kayaking and rafting guide on the emerald Soča river. Since then, I have spent every spring – autumn season in Bovec, and in wintertime, I was gathering guiding experiences from places like Chile, Brazil, California, or Montenegro.

As I have always loved water sports, I was excited to try Stand Up Paddleboarding when I first heard of it. Right after that, I bought my own SUP and started seeking hidden places on the water to explore. I love this possibility to just paddle away from everything, and enjoy the stillness and peace of nature. And because whitewater is my natural habitat, I also took my SUP to the river. Since then, whitewater paddleboarding has been my biggest passion and challenge.

After seeing many people renting paddleboards and struggling with maintaining the balance and paddling straight, I decided to change it. I took all my experience teaching water sports, made an ISA SUP instructor certification to follow the highest standards, and opened a SUP company in Bovec. I believe that there are no untalented people for sports, but only unskilled guides. I enjoy sharing my experience and love for paddleboarding, and I am sure that I will make you fall in love with it as well.
