      Introduction to Kayaking (DCE SK)

      Introduction to Kayaking is a 4-hour clinic teaching you the basic skills needed to paddle any type of kayak. This includes sit on tops, recreational, touring, whitewater and inflatable kayaks.

      Kayaking can be fun and easy if you learn the right techniques. It has little to do with strength, and much more to do with finesse and effortless power. You'll learn more in this 4-hour class than most people learn in several seasons alone.

      Here's a few things you'll learn:

      • 5 misunderstood concepts to effortless paddling
      • 6 simple rescues that anyone can do in deep-water
      • 4 myths to an effortless roll
      • 9 essential strokes and skills you should master before learning the Kayak Roll, Whitewater or Touring

      You'll also learn the most stable ways to enter and exit the kayak from shore, as well as how to quickly exit and re-enter a capsized kayak in deep water. A variety of self-rescues, including the Kayak Roll and assisted rescues are demonstrated throughout the class. You'll learn the basic strokes and body mechanics to paddle efficiently, comfortably and confidently in any direction on lakes and easy flat water rivers.

      Intro to Kayak is a prerequisite for 2-day Intro to Whitewater and the 2-day Intro to Sea Kayaking.

      Learn the safest, most efficient way, while saving time and money in this Intro to Kayak class.
