WHITEWATER (KAYAK) FAST TRACK (Ages 13 and up!)
$149 (+ tax) per student, includes equipment.
This one day course is designed for students who want to learn the basics of whitewater kayaking. The construction, outfitting and carrying of the whitewater kayak will be discussed. The on-water portion begins on flat water to acclimate students to the feel of a whitewater kayak. We will cover wet exits and the basic strokes needed to get the most out of your paddling experience. After a break for lunch we will move downstream to moving water. The on-river portion of the lesson begins with a discussion about river features. From there we will review all the basic strokes with more focus placed on leans and braces. While traveling down river, eddy turns, peel outs, and ferrying will be taught in friendly class I rapids. Basic scouting and river etiquette will be also be discussed. This course requires good physical stamina, good swimming ability and comfort in the water.
