Great experience! I was a little hesitant to do one on one coaching with Rob due to the cost difference in the group sessions but there really is no substitute for the amount of attention & coaching you get in a one on one class. I did a downwind and just kind of “all around” SUP class with Rob in the Puget Sound and I had so much fun. I learned a bunch of new techniques and he improved on what I thought I already knew. He has an alumni FB group for his students and said I can hit him at any time for more advice. Great value for money, I would do that class again in a heartbeat. Thanks Rob!

Booked a day surf ski lesson with Salmon Bay Paddle. I had a fantastic time with Rob He provided detailed background on surf ski’s, helped me understand the options and considerations for buying and the differences between models, instructions and consistent coaching. If you’re new to paddling or paddling in the PNW, I would highly recommend taking a lesson and or doing a guided expedition with Salmon Bay Paddle. Top notch. I’ll be coming back.
