Thanks, Brian!

We enjoyed our time out on the water on kayaks for the first time. Thanks for carrying both kayaks down to the shore and letting me borrow your watch to keep time. The water was... read more

Waited there for over an hour. Brian the owner didn't give us much attention. Overall It seemed that i was trying to sell something for him and not the other way around. I was Very disappointed and I left without being offered anything. Honestly, It does not seem he was prepared to offer a kitesurfing/windsurf class

We enjoyed our time out on the water on kayaks for the first time. Thanks for carrying both kayaks down to the shore and letting me borrow your watch to keep time. The water was calm and it was record hot 104 that day. We should have done an extra hour as we wanted to go further out. Nice talking... More

I took my first ever kiteboarding lesson from Brian’s this last summer. I was a little nervous at first while driving from my home in Portland to The Event Site (the local kite beach) but that quickly passed as soon as I got to Brian’s. There’s a real laidback vibe going on down there that makes you feel right at... More

Was so excited to learn how to windsurf! To my disappointment Brian was very rude, Hannah, our instructor, was helpful but not very experienced. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say she was young. The equipment was old and low quality. Next year I will try another school in the gorge, I guess we'll see how it... More

Brian is an extremely personable, one-on-one instructor. My boyfriend was his only kiteboarding student for the morning so he received a lot of personal attention. Brian was very educated on the sport and his laid-back attitude made him a wonderful instructor. The instruction session was very personalized and Brian was attentive and structured the lesson based on individual needs. My... More

Very good instructors and good equipment. From Beginning to near pro level this is the place. Getting to know Brian is worth the visit even if you don't take a lesson

Brian is the Owner and he cares about the experiences of his clients. Kiran was our instructor. We have 2 teenagers, both beginners. The beginner lesson was 3 hours -- 1 hour on land with special windsurfing board and then in the cove for practice. Kiran gave the boys great instructions and when they hit the water they both got...
