Thank you so much again for the fabulous lesson today! We all had an absolute blast. When Kendallís mom dropped Kate off at our house this afternoon, the girls were begging us to go tomorrow. They were offering to pay for it, even! I think weíve got some lifelong SUPers on our hands... ~Nancy
Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks to Spring and the rest of the fine folks at Olympic Outdoor Center for the hospitality you showed to the kids from Midlothian High School's Aquatic Science class. The kids (and I) had a blast on the water, and the visit to Port Gamble Environmental Lab was a surprise treat. I think that may have sealed my daughter's aspirations to become a marine biologist.

I very much plan to keep doing SUP outings and plan to do Paddle Bainbridge 2013! I had a great time!!
The people, the food (crab!!) - and oh, the music - yay! yay! yay!
Kudos to you, John, Forest and Katie - thanks a mil!
Thank you again for scheduling the Saturday outing for our group. It was wonderful, Hawk was an excellent instructor and everyone had a great time, and 4 of us would like to sign up for the SK-2 class this Thursday evening. ~Julia Atwood
I just wanted to say what great camp our son, Luc Willey, had this week with Mylie and Rubin, Spring Courtright's instructors for the Outdoor Adventure Camp. Luc has not done an intense camp like this without an aid, and he had a fantastic week from what I can tell. Kudos for this camp and its organization and instructors! ~Gretchen Gende
I ran into several people this weekend who took part of your latest Adventure Camp and they LOVED it. Truly, they were incredibly impressed and are looking forward to see what we will be offering in upcoming seasons. One of them also took the SUP class and said it was one of the best classes she has ever taken. Think Iíll have to bring my wife along for the next class on a sunny day.

I actually went to the shop two weekends ago to buy the
boys their wetsuits. They stocked a lot of really great equipment for my
kayak building projects. It is good to know that they can order items
that are not on the website as well, as I am always looking for parts
that are difficult to find sometimes.
