Now that you're booked, here are some things to know before your lesson.

Sessions are typically done at Bernert Landing (Willamette Park) in West Linn, or other locations in the Portland Metro area. We also can also travel to you, but depending on the distance, there may be an extra charge for travel expenses. Please contact us for more information.

All sessions include the use of a life jacket and helmet for no charge.

Wetsuits are recommended when water temperature is less than 75 degrees. We recommend a drysuit rental when water is less than 60 degrees (spring/fall). You can wear regular clothing under a drysuit. Depending on water temperature, we recommend fleece or thermals under a drysuit to keep you warm.

We recommend bringing a towel, and wear something with a zipper pocket for keys. A rash guard is also helpful as you will be on your knees and elbows a lot and they can get scraped up. We are not responsible for any lost personal items. There is no storage on the boards themselves. We recommend not bringing any personal items like a cell phone unless you have something that will keep them safe, dry and will float. We don't recommend leaving anything on the dock as it can get stolen.

All cancellations must be done 48 hours in advance or your payment may be forfeited.

You must be 16 or older. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent for the full time of the lesson. Boards are rated for up to 230 lbs. Sorry, we cannot accommodate those over this weight limit.

We reserve to cancel at any time due to weather, water conditions, or staffing issues. In the event of a cancelation, we will credit you for a future lesson, or refunded if another time cannot be scheduled. If we feel at any time during a session that the rider is not obeying our instructions, or we believe the rider cannot ride safely, we reserve the right to stop a session at any time with no refund.

You must agree to abide by all our rules . If you don't adhere to our rules, we can stop your ride at any time with no refund. To see our rules and sign our waiver click here (rules are highlighted at the end):
