Performance Paddling

May 19 @ 9:00 am - May 20 @ 4:00 pm PDT

Private Kayak Coaching, Anacortes, Washington

This class is intended for experienced sea kayakers looking to hone their kayaking skills to a high level of performance in dynamic environments. We develop an understanding of how wind, waves and currents affect our kayaks and how we can use these effects to control our boats with certainty and ease. With the techniques of solid edge control, subtle and dynamic blade awareness, an active posture, and the forces of the environment we develop skillful kayak performance allowing you to take your paddling to new level of performance. Make your paddling more Effective, Efficient, and Easy with this kayaking class!

Meant as a natural progression from our Body Boat Blade course, we will take the skills you’ve learned into a dynamic environment; testing them against wind, waves, and current.


  • Paddling into, across, and with the wind
  • Paddling into, across, and against waves
  • Efficient paddling in moving water


This is meant to be a progression of our Body Boat Blade skills class, but taking that course is not required. Much of this class will take place in dynamic water. Participants should have a working knowledge of how to link strokes effectively. Wet exits are likely and so you must be comfortable coming out of your boat unexpectedly.
