We had a great introduction to stand up paddle board with Bill. The river is beautiful and we highly recommend it if you are visiting the Santa Rosa area

Bill is an amazing guide and teacher for the paddle board class. I’ve taken it twice and he matches your experience with what he teaches. The river is beautiful and Bill knows the best places. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area or visiting.

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
