Your primary instructor, Daren, is an ACA Level 3 certified sea kayak instructor, with endorsements in both Adaptive paddling and Rolling. I have enjoyed teaching kayak essentials and rescue and rolls classes at the YMCA since 2012, instructing annually at the Door County Sea Kayak Symposium, as well as conducting Kickstart Kayaking classes to those brand new to the sport. Prior to being an instructor, Daren served 21 years with the US Army, residing at several military installations throughout the states and abroad. He has been in the medical field since 1985 and currently still holds a nursing license.
