A quote from Bob: "We are all in a different place in our quest to become better paddlers, there are no experts in this field, we are all learning and growing all the time. There are those of us who have had many experiences to learn from and we wish to share those experiences with you. My goal is to meet everyone of you at your current skill level and help you become a better paddler and/or outdoor educator. I want to create a learning environment where we can all be at ease, have fun and add some tools to our paddling tool box". No question is a silly question, so feel free to ask questions during your time with us.
