Wonderful experience, A bit tricky at first on the hand controls, but soon you get the maneuvers down which makes your flight smoother. If you are a water person and looking for adventure, this is definitely for you.

Took my son for his birthday. He did a tandem ride and had the time of his life. I just wish both of us parents could have gone on the boat.

It was great. My first time, so I didn't know what to expect. Next time I will learn more tricks and make it more exciting for myself.
