My Husband and I took the beginning kayak class this last Sat
with Shane. We wanted to say we thought she was great. She is
really good at explaining and demonstrating techniques. My skills
and confidence increased a lot in just that short time. I wish I
could go on the women's trip next Sat but will be out of town. I
hope it's scheduled again in the future.
