If you want to have a ton of fun, see beautiful stretches of the Russian River, and learn a lot about SUPing, join Bill Mashek and the Rubicon crew. My boyfriend and I too his his 13-year old on the downriver tour today. We got great, clear instructions before and throughout the trip in proper form, navigating rapids, avoiding hazards, and more. Bill is patient and has a great sense of humor. I have a fair amount of paddling experience and still learn a lot from him every time—and this is my third tour with Rubicon. Everyone had a blast today. We’ll be riding the stoke until our next trip—hopefully not too far in the future!

We took a tour with Bill from Wohler Bridge with my two boys 8 & 10 years old. Bill is great with the kids and took a lot of time to run through the basics so would be safe and in control on the water. The river is beautiful and we paddled all the way to the damn. We loved the tour and cannot wait to do it again, cannot recommend it more. Thank you Bill!

Going down river on a paddle is always a fabulous trip - after the first time, it’s easier to handle and more fun than a kayak or canoe

Great experience. I was uncertain about taking on this activity but game to try. The instructor "John" was thorough and careful with the introduction instruction activity on dry land. When we put in the river John was attentive and provided continuous instruction and encouragement. It was a perfect day on the Russian River at Wohler Bridge. We paddled up river for about 1/2 the time then stopped for rest and snacks (watermelon, cookies) and lots of talk about surfing, beaches etc. The trip down was somewhat easier and quicker again with John offering tips and training as we went along. A big thank you to the Rubicon group for this experience. I will use their business for further training and adventures.

Super fun for my first time! They served us sandwiches, watermelon and cookies for dessert! At the end we took a swim in the cold water.
