    When you watch competent paddle boarders, there are many visual similarities that stand out. One particular benchmark is how straight (perpendicular) the paddle shaft is to the water during the pull of the forward stroke. By maintaining this perpendicular shaft,...

Fabulous customer service! I bought my 404 LTD from them in 2022. John, the owner, is a great coach and really enjoys teaching techniques for paddling. I did a clinic with him at Carolina Cup in 2023 and it helped me make my stroke more efficient and I felt good during the whole race implementing his coaching tips. He can even do video coaching remotely! Great business and great coach!

Great experience with Vermont Ski. Jonathon was very helpful and I was able to get the ski gear that best suited my needs and my anatomy. Kudos for going the extra mile in making sure I got the right equipment, it's definitely performed well. I am very happy with my purchase and the customer service.

I had an amazing experience. Super helpful, fantastic customer service, also very nice to deal with a real person. Ordered my kids skis online and they were perfect l. Picked up a pair for my husband while we were in Vermont for the week, he loves them. Thank you!

These guys are the best in the business. They are super knowledgeable and have 5-star customer service. I recently purchased my dream paddleboard from them and I was extremely impressed with the level of care and customer service I received. Jonathan walked me through the process from start (deciding which board and is best for me) all the way to the finish line (when my board was delivered and unboxed)…and beyond! It’s very clear that they take a lot of pride in what they do and how well they treat their customers. I plan on being a lifetime customer and I highly recommend them.

Jonathan, what a guy! He made buying my fiancé and I our first snowboards and gear very easy. I made my purchase from California so I was unable to visit Jonathan for a fitting. He did everything over the phone and went above and beyond to get me exactly what I need. I am very pleased with my purchase and all the time Jonathan put into making sure everything was perfect. Thanks again & I look forward to making future purchases!

Incredible staff that truly care. Purchasing the perfect set of skis at the right price point can be daunting—even for the most seasoned skier. The team at Vermont Ski and Sport jump at the opportunity to offer their expertise and impeccable service. They stand behind their brand and are undeniably the best out there. If you're reading this post trying to locate a customer-obsessed, quality business that will do right by you, then congratulations. You've found it.
