My wife and I signed up for lessons with Brandon and had a great time. He gave thorough instructions and had us standing up in no time. We really enjoyed our time out on the water.

Thanks for the review! You can’t go wrong paddling at Two Jack, it’s one of our go to favourite spots. Awesome to know the public transit is easy to use too.

Such a beautiful evening on Two Jack lake. Perfect conditions for a Sunset Tour. We couldn’t have asked for better company! Thank you for coming out and thanks for coming into the shop as well. See you next time!

Oh my god! Ryan and Neil rocked it. They were very patient with us 6 ladies. As intimidating as it seemed at the start they made us feel confident in our abilities to handle to river. A great experience. Highly recommend.

If you have never been stand up paddle boarding you have to try it! These guys offer rentals and lessons for beginners. Paddle boarding in the beauty of the mountains was a fantastic experience. Can't wait to go out again next summer!
