"Totally awesome day on the water thanks to Woodward Surf Company!! If you're looking for Salem kayak rentals or stand-up paddleboards for rent then look no further. It was so easy to book online and just show-up at the water wand they had my kayaks ready to go. I can't wait to try Neon Nights next week!! See you again soon, thanks Team Woo :-)"
"Rented equipment here many times. Never had an issue, equipment is always in top condition, and the people who work here are good at what they do."
"Their kayaks are always clean and ready to go. Friendly service. They were awesomely willing to work with us when we needed to pick up kayaks the night before to get an early start on a trip the next day."
"I have been flowing this company on FB. We have never been Kayaking before and decided to try their rentals at the Turner Lake. Great experience. Kayaks were ready for us when we arrived, customer service was good, and we felt the price was perfect. We will be back and hope to try one of their river rentals now."
"Such a great experience. We met at Wallace Marine, we’re driven to independence by a very kind and fun driver. The equipment was nice and all set up for us when we arrived. Easy fun kayak trip."
"The owners were responsive to questions, provided tips for loading boards, gave recommendations for favorite routes and time approximations.. all of which were useful since I'm new to the activity. This was an all around great experience!"
"Awesome service. Professional staff. All paddle boards and kayaks were of very good quality. Will definitely rent from them again and again."
"The process of booking a kayaking boat online was simple. Even more, the staff were very friendly and helpful."
"Owner and staff really friendly and helpful. Definitely coming back!"
"Fantastic experiences every time! They offer kayak and SUP rentals, shuttled floats, night floats and more. My most recent experience with them was the Water to Wine float from Keizer Rapids Park to Arcane Cellars. 👍👍 Easy and affordable for a day of fun! Their customer service has been the best. Highly recommend!"
"Super friendly and welcoming. Did a great job for keeping everyone safe and having fun."
"I have had my eye on this company for over a year now, as I have been wanting to try SUP for some time. This year I have been able to sign up for two events that Woodward puts on - Neon Nights and rentals out at Turner Lake. Both times were amazing!"
"Great time practicing yoga on Paddleboard. Turner Lake such a great spot. Class act! Cannot wait to do it again!"

"Hands down the perfect evening on the willamette river. The crew that run the place are the greatest, very chill, friendly, down to earth great people. If you are new, or experienced, doesn’t matter they make you feel right at home. I highly recommend the night kayaking, such a great experience."
