Keep in mind that Jim has a full selection of gear for sale. Stop in and talk to Jim before making a purchase. He is an expert on gear and can tell you what to buy and what makes sense for your level. The gear that you can purchase at local sporting goods stores is unusually NOT the correct thing for you.
Please stop by and talk to Jim. He has classes most days and will also do seminars, private lessons and group private lessons. ALL levels and abilities are welcome.
