If you have paddled before, you’ll learn how to paddle much more effectively and efficiently, gaining the confidence and proficiency to learn more advanced skills.

In addition to strokes and maneuvers, in the 12 hours of instruction we’ll go over safety issues, kayaks and equipment, how to dress for the conditions you’ll be paddling in, and some basic rescue techniques.

Beginning with a safe wet exit, some of the specifics we’ll cover include

Maneuvers

All equipment provided (kayak, paddle, helmet), however, those with packrafts may bring their own CLEAN raft to the last scheduled class.

Join us for some fun, and make your own paddling safer and more enjoyable.
