Intermediate Whitewater Paddling Kayak Boot Camp

Friday, June 19, 2015 12:00 AM to Sunday, June 21, 2015 12:00 AM

This is a physically intense, and intensely fun, course for people who believe that kayaking will be better if they get better, and, are willing to work very hard to get better. This course, together with your serious effort, will result in a quantum leap in your kayaking ability making you a more confident (but exhausted) Class III paddler. You must be in at least your second season of kayaking, with at least 8 days of paddling last year, and at least 6 days of paddling this year, and, you must have several days of Class III experience.

Kayak Rolling 202: Kayak River Rolling

Friday, June 12, 2015 12:00 AM to Saturday, June 13, 2015 12:00 AM

River Rolling 202: Often neglected in paddling circles, the bombproof roll is making a comeback in 2015. Join us for two days of hard work emphasizing rolling in turbulent river situations. It's going to be fun, but we're going to spend lots of time upside down. Why? Because as your paddling progresses to more difficult levels you really should be able to roll up 99% of the time in class III or IV water. So... if you NEVER miss a roll in the pool/pond, but OCCASIONALLY swim in real river situations, then this class is for you.
