Rolling Lessons $40.00
Kayak rolling is on almost every paddler’s “want” list.  There’s not much about rolling a kayak that you will figure out on your own, so learning from a coach that can guide you through a progression is the fastest way to get a roll. Our group rolling lessons are a great way to get started as you’ll have time to rest between one on one sessions with the coach and you’ll be able to learn from observing your fellow student

Bracing, Rolling and River Rescues 4/15 $40.00 Register Now
Session 3 of the River Kayaking course is developing the skills to not tip over and then dealing with what to do if you do.  We’ll wrap up with an intro to rolling a kayak.


Kayak Fresh Start $80.00 (2 sessions)
Kayak Fresh Start is for those with some prior kayaking experience but with little or no formal training and for those brand new to kayaking.  We’ll build off what you already know and refine it and add to it to make you a more efficient paddler in greater control of your kayak. If you want to paddle further with less effort, turn your kayak with ease or move sideways effectively then Kayak Fresh Start will get you going.

30 Second Kayak Rescue  $40.00
Can you get someone back into a dry touring kayak in under 30 seconds?  If not, let us help you become safer, faster and more efficient in assisted rescues.  30 Second Kayak Rescue

Happiness Upside Down $40.00. If you are going to learn to roll or even be relaxed about putting your boat on edge, being comfortable being upside down in your boat is essential.  We’ve developed a great progression to get you feeling relaxed and unconcerned about being upside down in your kayak.  We will move along the progression at a rate that makes you comfortable.  For some it may take just a few minutes but for many it may be a full pool session.  Once you’re happy capsizing and hanging out there for a few seconds, you’ll be in the best place to learn the roll. The class is 2 hours long but participants are welcome to spend the last half hour of the pool session practicing on their own.
