What people are saying about Dynamic Paddlers.
What really makes Dynamic unique is the ability to paddle virtually anywhere. Most adaptive programs are restricted to very specific times and places, which doesn’t give people full freedom. Exploring the tunnels was totally unexecpected and off the beaten path – awesome! Giving me that autonomy to chose where we went was huge!- Bryan McCormick, Pittsburgh, PA
Absolutely Fantastic! Thanks to Larry and Don for an excellent, professional, and exciting Kayaking Merit Badge class for BSA Troop 596. Very well prepared and presented. Everyone had a great time. I would recommend this program for every Boy Scout Troop and to anyone for that matter.- Jay Panzarella, BSA Troop 596 (Gibsonia, PA)
I really appreciated the work everyone put into the event – thank you very much for getting me out on the water! I liked getting a little education before heading out, I missed that 20 years ago when I did it on my own. It was really great to be able to get into a kayak again!- David Gifford, Pittsburgh, PA
I really liked that Don was right there beside us in the pool and gave us step-by-step instructions on the best way to perform a re-entry into the kayak. His enthusiasm and willingness to be in the pool with everyone made a huge difference in the class.- Mike Matvey – Western PA Chapter, Heroes on the Water
The girls had a wonderful time learning the basics of canoeing on the pond at Camp Sky Meadow! Larry was very patient, calm, and provided a safe and fun learning environment. Our girls are more confident now and ready for some open water adventures – even our parents had fun trying out his new skill! We can’t wait to get out back on the water with Dynamic Paddlers.- Amy Majetic – Girl Scout Troop 51221
A tremendous organization. Greatly appreciate their work with our scout troop. The instruction and quality of the Dynamic Paddler’s 1-Day BSA Kayaking Merit Badge Program are incredible. Knowledgeable and adaptive – they worked through adverse weather and high water to ensure our scouts had the opportunity to complete the program on time and in a safe manner.- Todd Fuller – Adult Leader of Troop 2, Frontier District, BSA Laurel Highlands Council
My son Evan is a RAE (Right Above Elbow) congenital amputee and he had a great time paddling with Dynamic Paddlers at the Chicago Boat Show. Larry is awesome!- Thomas Sheehan – Chicago, Illinois
As parents, it’s our job to prepare our children to go out into the world ready and able. The skills we learned with Dynamic Paddlers gave us the confidence to try kayaking on our own. They took their time with Jake – both informative and empathetic. It was great too see Jake smile and to know that he is very capable and able to try new things. We cannot wait to come back to Pittsburgh and paddle with Dynamic!- Tim & Debbie Miller – Buffalo, New York
