    The training was amazing. I signed up for the MLK intensive course, which I learned the basics of keelboat and sailing over three days.
    Ryan was a great instructor. He was clear in explaining the terms and guiding us through how to think when we sail. He also made sure we get as many practice as possible and effectively ensured everyone of us were able to sail well on the water.
    Besides the course itself, the people at Bluewater Sailing (especially Elliot and Wendy) are friendly and thoughtful. I have recommended Bluewater to friends that want to experience sailing as well as enjoying it long term. This is definitely a great community to be part of and build solid foundations for sailing.

    It's a nice park by the boat docks. Great for friends and families. Just watch out for the homeless and random trash.

    Took grandkids there and spent an afternoon. The beach is pretty flat and reasonably clean. Many activities available, paddle surfing, water bus and tour and playgrounds.

    We were here beginning and end of December. During first visit there was life.....volleyball, kayaking, young children beginning surf lessons, runners, joggers, walkers, dogs, bikes, skaters, etc. Filled with life, which was WONDERFUL to finally see ( just before Omicron hit U.S>)

    I live right near Ballona Creek. It is great to bike ride on. It is really nothing more than a bike path. Some jog and walk there and I don't think that wise. This area is known for predators waiting to take advantage of someone not paying attention to what they are doing. Also, I would never bike this area at night. Some do, and that is a choice. If you are not from here, I really would stick to the bike path on the beach at night.

    The creek bike path is pretty. It goes on for miles and you can connect from there to the beach and into Culver City to the east. You can catch it off Centinela near Braddock or closer to the beach near Washington Blvd.

    There are egrets and herons to see and when we have had a big rain (rare) the creek has water in it (this is a man made creek and nothing to look at in wonder). What I like about the creek bike path is I don't have to worry about getting hit by car on the main streets near Culver City and the beach (Venice Beach).

    If you want to enjoy the creek bike path, just pay attention. Don't have your headphones on so loud that you can't hear someone approaching. Chances are you will be fine, but there have been robberies and no one wants that. Just stay on your bike and you will be fine.

    Just a touristy area with a beautiful view. Needs a little facelift - but parking was easy! We went to see the home of Bluth’s Banana Stand!

    Handy little strip of shops that is easily accessible via the free beach shuttle if you are staying in or near Marina Del Rey. It has a really decent sized Ralph's supermarket (grocery store) and a large bank and some lovely little boutique shops. The local information bureau is across the road .

    Easy way to get golf clubs on for your trip ! Clubs arrived on time, actually a day early. The clubs were delivered just as advertised. These were similar to my personal clubs and were in great shape. The only thing I would have like was a softer set of grips but thats a personal choice.

    The parking lot can get really jammed due traffic in area. The store are no different you can find elsewhere, too. Beyond traffic no negative comments, all in all a regular marketplace.

    The ProSUP staff seals the deal. Everyone is happy and helpful. They make coming here a treat. The location could not be better. Right on the water, adjacent to a huge parking lot, next to a great restaurant. Who ever is managing ProSUP should be given a medal. The operation is perfection. So welcoming. Can’t say enough positive things about ProSUP.
