for the love of rowing
Since Adirondack Rowing began its business in
1970, we made the decision to provide the
highest quality educational, informational, and instructional services for
new and experienced scullers and rowers. We have kept to that
commitment without fail. We have found, in every one of those 46 years,
that prospective and experienced scullers truly need a high quality
rowing and sculling educational and instructional service before they
consider purchasing for the first time or for the second time, or more, a new or used rowing
shell. All scullers who understand the importance of a quality
educational and learning
experience become happy, injury-free, lifelong scullers.
Our emphasis on the highest quality educational approach
has resulted in our being the
oldest and best full
service rowing shell dealer on the North American continent. Since our
first sculling lesson in 1970, we have delivered unparalleled new
and used rowing and sculling
products for open water and racing shells. We also offer the planet's
largest rowing shell
rental program as well as premium, high-quality, individualized, sculling
lessons for all levels of sculling. In fact, Adirondack Rowing was the
first and remains the only company to have the rowing shells we offer
and instruction on the same shoreline. No other full service dealer
exists with such high quality services that we offer to the rowing

Fixed Seat Rowing
Adirondack Rowing is the first place to
offer a fixed seat rowing school with demos and rentals. It occurred to
us as a rowing boat company that guideboat education
and rental opportunities were non-existent and thereby neglectful of the
outdoor publicís wants and needs.

proud of our unparalleled customer service and our motto to treat others
as we would want to be treated. Over the years we have received

customers! We always respond to our customers with our appreciation, as
we are very thankful of these kind words. On our testimonial page we
proudly post these phone calls, emails and letters for others to read so

I just want to let you know that Bill, Dave, Grigory,
and I all had a wonderful time rowing from Long Lake to Ampersand Bay in your
Adirondack Guideboats last week. We greatly appreciated the care you
took in explaining everything we needed to know about the boats and
wheel-a-weighs, providing us with a repair kit (which did come in handy
for retightening some bolts along the way), and instructing the novices in
the basics of sculling. Please also extend my thanks to Karen for her patience
in answering the many questions I had before the trip. M. Schleier, PA.
|Just a note to say thank you very
much for the great sculling lesson and also to tell you that you ought to
change your company motto to "we fix $40 rowing lessons!". Your class
was what we really needed. We only wished that we would have taken it
before our other lesson! We have never experienced such well thought
out, practical and fun instruction. We learned a lot in the two hours
and it really shows in our sculling stroke. Our friends at the club
quickly noticed how much we had improved after we got back from your place.
Thanks again and we are so pleased that we found you! S & L Paulicek,
I can't thank you enough for your service and treatment
of me as a first time shell buyer. In gathering all information
possible from every source on rowing you were the standout among all
dealers and manufacturers. Unlike the others you were completely
positive, definitive, very thorough and quick to help me out. This
means a lot to us Alaskans because it is difficult to receive what we want
in a timely manner. Rowers would be crazy to deal with anyone other
Anstin, Fairbanks ALASKA
you so much for having my family at your Rowing School. We learned so
much and had a great time! My wife and kids enjoyed the rowing so much!
To be able to compare all the shells and family boats in one place is the
way to go. You were so descript on the attributes of MAAS, Alden and
Pocock that the decision on which shell to buy was easy. We plan on
coming back next year when our son is old enough for his own shell. We
know he will get the best shell for his needs while on vacation in the
Adirondacks or almost anywhere else in the Continental USA. M. Kellerher, Madison WISC
We want to thank all of our great
customers who have been such a support to us over our 40 years
of business. This support has allowed us to continue to bring the best open
water shells, wherries and guideboats to your shorelines for enjoyment.
