As paddlers, we have so many fantastic local resources: water, waves, weather, and great shops for gear and instruction. But my favorite is The Ghost. If you love downwinding, if you even think you mi...ght like it, then you need to go out with Drew and Nico. Drew has spent a lot of time figuring out how to get you the best lines and glides, and he works hard on the water to make the trip fun, exciting and safe. And the people! I always run into at least one friend whenever the wind is up and the boat is out. Thanks, Drew, for helping make SF Bay a true DW mecca. See More

Thank you so much for a great time and keeping us all safe on the red rock mission. The course you outlined really allowed us to have the best downwinder possible and the sausages post paddle put a ch...erry on top! Joe thank you for being our guide out on the water, it was awesome getting to paddle with you and thanks for reminding me to go for it i had a great time with those waves! You have a winning crew and unique trips and I will continue to send all my friends your way because I know they will have the time of their life and will be in good hands! See More

Drew really seems to have these downwinder trips dialed in. In addition to not having to deal with boring, and time-consuming car shuttles, Drew can drop off and pick up from a number of locations in... the bay. The runs are customizable on-the-fly based on the conditions and who's on the boat. That is something you just can't do from land. So many more options and WAY more fun! See More

Drew was fantastic! He was so friendly & took us along the scenic route to the cove so that we could take it all in. We had so much fun & would definitely do it again!

The Seven Islands trip was amazing! We learn a lot about the history of the island and finally had the opportunity to see Red Rock from the red side ^_^ Drew is very knowledgeable and makes it a fun e...xperience. Nico is a dream first mate! Can't wait and come back for some paddle boarding fun! Definitely recommend Barbary Ghost for anybody who would like to spend a nice day on the water ^_^ See More

Thanks Drew for a killer day - personal, unique, and all around awesome. I mean, you ordered a blend of headwind and tailwind, had my own personal SUP buddy (NICO!) and you even kept us out longer planned simply because it was beautiful! Big gratitude and love for the safe, kick ass trip! Can't wait for our next adventure :) See More

Downwind SUP Clinic - Saturday July 2nd
SIC F-12 En Route to Downwind

No better way to spend a Thursday afternoon than chasing waves with Mike, Janet, Victoria, and Tom!

A truly EPIC downwind session last Saturday:

Amazing downwind run with SF locals Mel and J under 40mph winds shaped by an ebbing tide. Barbary Ghost is a San Francisco charter boat offering the ultimate...
