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.
