Intro to Kayaking 101


Welcome to Intro to Kayaking 101! This class is designed for paddlers who have little or no experience kayaking on calm water. This class is the first in series of 3 classes. You can take just this one class to get your kayaking career started or take all 3 classes to enhance your kayaking education and experience. The class is divided into 2 parts: land and water sessions. While on land, learn about kayak types and design, paddles, life jackets (also known as PFD - Personal Flotation Device), safety gear, clothing, transportation and other subjects. Take a short break to eat a snack, stretch and prepare to launch our kayaks on water for the first time! Once on water, we practice entrance and exit techniques and different paddle strokes. Finish the class with a kayaking game or some basic drills.
