Comments from Dale's students:

"Dale is an excellent, inspiring, relaxed instructor and example of consumate kayak surfing skills. His off-water instruction provided good guidance and the on-water suggestions were immediately effective when accomplished properly. Also, just watching him surf was highly illustrative. If Dale were to make a detailed instructional video it would be great! Thanks for two challenging days of progress."  —Chris E.

"Two long concentrated surf sessions with Dale were great because I focused on surfing, specifically boat control in the waves. Taking the time to do one concentrated thing with feedback was a great experience. Dale gives you time to work with his suggestions until you're ready to apply more information. I highly recommend this for anybody interested in surfing their sea kayaks!"  —Ashley B.
