INTRO TO KAYAKING
This course is designed to transform you into a whitewater kayaker. Emphasis is on safety and practical skills, allowing you to maximize your fun and minimize frustrations in this early stage of learning. We strive to make you feel comfortable, safe, and have a successful introduction to kayaking. All equipment is provided, unless you want to use your own.
Expect to spend your first morning on flat water and gently moving water, learning new skills and gaining knowledge. You will get wet!! By the first afternoon we are on whitewater applying skills established earlier in the day. Day two is designed around your goals and skills. Usually we run a river that is well within your ability but also gives you a taste of adrenaline!
We will cover in detail; gear fit and its proper use, wet exits, basic strokes, river safety, river reading and strategy, and the roll. We will spend as much time practicing the roll as you want, since this is a difficult skill to learn without an instructor. Learning to roll your boat is one of the best ways to gain confidence as a beginner kayaker and we make sure you get it right!
