SUP (stand Up Paddling) on the Russian River!!! I bought 2 for my teenaged daughter and her friend. It turned out to be an amazing experience for both of them. We met at 9 am near the Wohler Bridge on Russian River. The guides, Bill and John brought the boards, life jackets, everything! They took their time on the lesson and safety issues, which, as the Mom, I really appreciated. They had the girls laughing but were simultaneously very serious. They are obviously experts and very good at what they do. They had them up and running in short order. The girls were a little anxious at first but were exhilarated and confident when they returned. There is very little current up there which makes it a great spot for novices. We can't wait to try it again. I could see this a family adventure or a rocking singles outing. Get out there!
