“We were VERY impressed with our time with Russian River Paddle Boards. John is friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the area. We appreciated the time he took helping us start out trip and his willingness to accommodate us. He had useful tips about paddle boarding and the route we chose, which made our day much easier to navigate. We had a great time!”
-C.D. from Santa Rosa, CA

“John was the best teacher and guide! He was patient with my fear of falling and with his help, I was able to stand on the board! He is a gifted teacher and clearly knows how to help all levels! I highly recommend John! The beauty of the Russian river is amazing and John is the perfect guide and teacher!”
-Brandi P. from Albany, CA

“We spent a morning on the river and although I grew up swimming in the river, we saw a whole new side of the area. John is an informed guide and a patient instructor. Highly recommend this for families and friends!”
-Kathleen L. from Petaluma, CA

“From the very first phone call to returning the boards, my experience with John was exceptional! My husband and I made a spontaneous decision to drive 2 hours from south bay to go paddle board with our dog on Saturday morning. John was very flexible and clear with me about time, cost and other policies. When we got to the lake, he helped us understand different routes we can take and tips that locals know. He is very kind, chill and knowledgeable. We had a great family time on the river and will definitely come back!”
