My wife and I and our two kids (10 & 12), did the SUP 101 Wohler Bridge Tour and it was absolutely incredible! Bill was a great instructor that got everyone up and paddling in no time. That part of the river is so beautiful and undeveloped that you really felt connected to the nature gliding on the water. Everyone... More

A group of my friends and I have done a few different SUP trips with Bill and crew at both Russian River and Tomales Bay. We had a great time, every time! Bill really takes the time to teach you the ropes of SUP'ing and how to navigate different areas of the river. Learned a lot all while having a... More

We had a good and privet time. It's September but not that hot. The river is quite, clean and shallow, prefect for someone like me who can not swim but also can enjoy the water activity. John is a very good guide with passion and patient. We love the time with him and nature.

This was such a ridiculously great way to start day. We were in the Russian River area to celebrate a birthday with friends. As so typical we planned to drink wine and eat great food, which we of course did. But to add this adventure to the list of activities was incredible. I highly recommend to break your routine and...

Both Bill and John were incredibly accommodating, friendly and helpful. We didn't plan ahead, and called on a Monday morning when they were just about to send out their trip for the day. We got a call back from John within 30 minutes, and he arranged to meet us at our convenience. It just so happened that Bill was returning... More

Rubicon offers many adventures for those whom want to be on the WATER! However, my recommendation is the the SUP Yoga class on the Russian River. They make it SO easy-you just "show up" and everything is ready for you! The highlight is paddling on the river until the "desired location" is decided upon. En route you pass ducks, turtles,...

I have been stand up paddle boarding for three years. Last summer I started taking yoga classes on the Russian River, on the paddle board. The teacher Arline is wonderful. The scenery can't be beat. River otters, turtles, fish, ducks, herons and eagles can be seen. It is a magical experience. I am hooked. You should definately try it!

What a day! For my husband's birthday, I booked us a stand-up paddle boarding experience on the Russian River. John was our guide and he was awesome and fun! He gave us some excellent paddling pointers that helped make us a lot more efficient and the paddle that much more enjoyable. We had a such a great time -- it... More

I've had a few lessons with John from Rubicon and I couldn't recommend him any higher. He's one of those guys with a natural ability to teach, and he took me from a floundering ultra novice who needed big fat boards to be stable to someone who could brace and paddle much faster boards in just a few lessons.

We have wanted to try stand up paddle boarding (SUP) for a while. So, when we were out in Windsor for a bike ride on Saturday, we decided to stay overnight to try SUP. On land, Bill showed us the basics of getting on the board, how to hold the paddle, how to paddle, steer, turn, stop, etc. Then it... More
