Foundation Courses

Learning what it takes to be effective, efficient, and easy on the body; these series of fun kayaking classes are the core to your understanding and knowledge as a paddler. Studying technique through the relationship between the body, boat, and blade, and then applying this knowledge to the environment is our goal. This series of classes will also help to further your understanding of camping from a kayak and help prepare you for planning your future kayak expeditions by developing a method of assessing risk, navigation, and trip planning.
