In this all day class paddlers will focus on boat control, safety, and building confidence. You will learn fundamental safety skills and stroke enhancements that will help you turn better and travel forward with less energy expended. Other skills will include basic rescues, edging, and beginning bracing. You’ll also be introduced to “risk management” as it relates to sea kayaking in the places you plan to play.

Course Covers: boat control – stroke enhancement, edging/stability, capsize prevention – bracing, moving sideways – draws & sculling, and rescue techniques
