A fantastic place to start learning how to kayak. If you have never kayaked before, or you aren’t sure if it’s the right fit, then this easy “taster” kayak class is the course for you. We will introduce you to the fundamentals of kayaking and help you to develop a better idea of where you want to take yourself. During the course we will cover basic paddling skills, as well as some paddle strokes to get you started. We will also look at options for kayaking equipment. All equipment will be included.
It is important to note that if you are more than casually interested in learning how to kayak then we highly recommend signing up for a more in-depth 2-day introductory class.
If after this class you would like to take the Foundations Level 1, we will apply the tuition from the Intro class to your Level 1 class!
This kayak class is super fun and takes place in the gorgeous surroundings of Fidalgo Island and stays in calm water.
Foundation courses develop good body awareness, balance, and understanding of how the boat and paddle interact with the water. A solid base of skills will make you a more efficient paddler. The goal for this course is to promote efficient, effective, and ergonomic kayaking for long term paddler development.
All Paddling Gear Is included in the tuition price. You are welcome to bring your own gear if you prefer.
