I booked paddle boards for three online Sunday, and found the website very easy to use. When we arrived, the man working was expecting us and ready to get us out on the lake. We had a great time and would definitely do it again!

5 of us went for a paddleboarding adventure this weekend. John was absolutely wonderful and he taught us everything we needed to know before heading out on our own. We would all recommend and we will definitely be back!
