Matt and Stephanie were great with our teenaged daughters. They had a great time. We have heard horror stories about no shows and Groupon issues. No issues here whatsoever. We received texts confirming location and start time. Highly recommend.

The guys from blue rush were awesome! Had a fantastic time. Super easy going and fun instructors but also took the time to explain everything well. Both my girlfriend and I got up on our boards. Definitely recommend.
