I've been noodling in this sport for longer then I would readily admit.
Now I'm anxious to get to a level where I can sail the Gorge with a smile on my face.
Any suggestions on a good instructor? Private instruction would suit me the best.
I just now am getting into front straps and hooking in comfortably.
Thanks for any help you might have.
Regards

I too have had lessons with Ben. He's good and very patient..

Lots of other great instructors in the Gorge, too. Other people might have more suggestions.

Ben has moved to the Canary Islands, but ABK will be here this summer.

Scott is the new guy running ABK Gorge school.
Also Andy Brandt, ABK's owner, will be here a lot in July & August.
These guys are highly recommended.
