I have paddled here for years, excellent location and great choice of equipment to rent. The "bay" right near the beach is perfect for beginners, protected and very often nice little waves/swells to practice how to catch runners. Or head out to many out farther and pick your routed depending on the wind. Pretty much all wind directions you can find a decent path.
They also have a nice selection of rental equipment, from beginner to elite skis. If you are looking for a lesson, Ed or someone on his staff can definitely help you out. Easily start off in a nice stable boat and progress at your own pace.
Also Lynch park offers a very nice setting for those who don't want to paddle, so great place to bring your family.
