Customer comment-
I am just writing to pass on some positive feedback about our experience at The Board House this evening. My 15 year old daughter and her friend rented paddle boards and both Max and Jeremy were very helpful, professional and personable. As I waited for the girls to return, each were promptly greeted and helped ashore. Both Max and Jeremy were very friendly and both stated how much they enjoyed their jobs. Just wanted to share with you how well both young men represent your company!

Thank You, Becki E.  7/28/2017
