    It was fun. Christian (the instructor) taught us many different paddleboard strokes. It kept the lesson interesting.

    Hi there, I'm trying to sign up for this event. I paid yesterday nothing came up. So, I tried again today, and still nothing. What should I do at this point?

      Bobby- contact organizers Vanessa or Tammy. I don't handle the money end, so I can't help with that end. I can only see if you have paid or not. I can't take anyone that is not showing up as paid
