Thanks for staying open late last Friday to help us with SUP purchases. We love the boards you set us up with and really appreciated your time. They will be great for the Boise and Cascade areas of Idaho.

I just wanted to tell you that I love my new board! (Hobie 11'2 ATR). The maiden voyage was cut short by the rain, but it was an amazing ride. I love the sound it makes going thru the water. I felt very stable and can't wait to spend more time on it. I can't thank you enough for your help in picking out the board. Your experience and expertise were evident throughout the process and made it easy to put my trust in you.

Stand Up Paddle Bend is the best!

Thank you so much for arranging the paddleboard session with my parents last Friday. They had an amazing time.

We were given a lesson by Kama Borne from Stand Up Paddle Bend. The young woman gave us specific instructions on how to mount the board, begin to paddle from a position on our knees, then use the paddle to balance on the board while we stood. Kama was an excellent instructor and had us on the water in no time. Standup paddling was much easier than I had imagined it would be. Best of all, I remained upright on the board during the entire experience. I really loved the feeling of gliding on top of the water. Standup paddling is something I will definitely try again, and I really recommend the SUP lessons from StandUp Paddle Bend.

Chip and Lainey,
Thanks for putting on a great race. With your help, I was able to demo a Kialoa paddle and a Surftech board in the 2-mile race and both performed exceptionally. As a surfer transplant to Bend, it was great to be out on the water and meeting like minded people. Plus, our two young boys enjoyed watching the 'skills challenge' and ask me daily to take them out paddling. I'm looking forward to the next race and will be stopping by your shop to pick up another board soon.

We love Standup Paddle Bend. Big Mahalo to Chip and Lainey from Rocky and me for a great race board. Glad we were able to do it justice at the Race for the River.

My husband and I had a date night on Thursday night and did our first Flow/Flow class! We loved every ounce of our time and are telling as many people as we can to come experience this wonderful gift!!

Wow. I am Gary from Eugene. My wife and I drove over to Bend last Friday specifically to take a lesson and to give SUP a go. We are both still very jazzed and would be at Dexter Lake (20 minutes from our house) if we had a board now. We had a blast. Jim kept it relaxed and challenging. Best to all!
