'I just had a wing foil lesson from Dan.  What an exhilarating fun watersport and a great instructor. My experience is with SUP boards and downwinding on the Columbia River and Puget Sound for the past 10 years. Since I have no experience in kiteboarding or windsurfing, taking this lesson made me really nervous.  I will tell you right from the start– it was so worth it.  Trying it on your own without any instructions would be crazy.  Dan provided just enough instructions so that it didn’t get overwhelming and yet enough to get you moving within 10 – 15 minutes.  Granted, I wasn’t doing turns or things like that but got the basic idea in handling the wing and standing up on the board and moving.  Expect to fall and expend a lot of energy in understanding the nuances but it is worth the lesson.  I have had lessons in other sports and I would rank Dan at the top of the list for instructors.  He is a superman in watersports yet is able to bring his knowledge and experience down to a lower level which I appreciated.  I am jazzed now to get a wing and put the lesson to good use."
