“If you’ve never given stand up paddling a try, by all means give Rob a call and take his lessons. He’s an excellent instructor – patient, thorough and possessing encyclopedic knowledge of the sport, local weather and water conditions. I took my first lesson from Rob three years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.” - Joseph McColskey
“There are plenty of SUP classes out there, most with very large groups and not a lot of one-on-one time. Rob’s classes are small and customized to suit your specific needs and perfect for those who really want to learn the in’s and out’s of the Pacific NW’s perfect sport.” Paul Edmondson
