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 blast. I highly recommend booking with Rubicon.

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.

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 from his trip just as we were heading out, so he joined us as well. They were both a lot of fun, and we felt quite confident on our boards after the great instructions they gave and just a little practice. They were also great with our two boys. Everyone had a fabulous time and we'll definitely go see them again.

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, grey/blue herons, once anchor dropped, Arline leads the "class" through a 60+yoga session-I can no longer do yoga in the studio as the board is my mat and nature/water is my studio. It is the BEST-TRY IT!

Thanks for the great review Christine, Every once in a while I get to take Arlines class. I enjoy yoga but SUP yoga adds more challenge and a better \\u0022core\\u0022 workout. .

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!
