Don’t just take it from us

We took a lesson more for our children as we wanted them to feel safe and knowledgeable on the river and on paddleboards, but now I realize how little we knew! Greg made it fun for all of us and gave us the confidence to even go down some of the rapids! We will be back for more - with or without the children.
Prior to taking Paddlestroke's SUP lessons, I had zero experience paddleboarding. I chose to take lessons because I wasn't familiar with the local rivers and want to take my dog with me at some point. Greg is an expert in his trade and is an excellent coach. Within a few lessons, I gained enough confidence to learn how to traverse the whitewater. His classes are fun and he provides all gear for students. I recommend his lessons for anyone wanting to learn safely and have fun doing so. I will take his class again.

I reached out to Greg last minute for a short trip to the area. He was incredibly accommodating and his enthusiasm for the sport was palpable and contagious! The lesson felt like taking instruction from a friend. If you want to paddleboard in the DC area, this is the guy you want to learn from.
