Subject: Board Rentals

Just wanted to say thanks to the staff, particularly the nice lady who was manning the store on Saturday, Aug 16th. I'm a beginner, my boyfriend has over 15 years of windsurfing experience. we come down to Hood River regularly to windsurf. We came in to rent a board for 2 days, and the lady working in the shop at that little place where all the little shacks are from the various companies (I always forget if its the marina or the event site) spent lots of time making certain that she had the RIGHT board for me to rent. This is in contrast with some of the other places we went to, where the person either didn't know what they were talking about, or who were so avid to rent ANY board that they tried to pressure me into taking some inappropriate gear.

Imagine our suprise when one place actually tried to rent me a small-ish (in volume) Formula Board, saying that it would be more stable for a beginner because of its width! The lady who helped us at your store, after I explained in detail my sailing experience and what I'd been sailing on, determined that the 175 liter Mambo (Hi-Fly) was the appropriate beginner board that would help me progress in skill. She was right! It was way more fun than the almost 300 liter picnic tables I'd been practicing on!

Thanks so much for the great service, knowledge, and experience, and I'll certainly be back to rent equipment from you again! Maybe even this weekend!
