Intended for the intermediate paddler (one who has paddled a few times in the past) and would like to increase their knowledge and expertise on the water. Kayaking is more than just moving your kayaking in a straight line. This 4 hour session will provide skills to maneuver your kayak around obstacles, using simple body moves to maximize turns, and paddle control. There will be a class room setting on the shore, prior to getting into the kayak, as we cover information about kayaking in which you may not have thought about. You will learn how to enter a kayak, how to fall out properly (wet-exit), use proper body movements to paddle (not just your arms), how to move your boat sideways, how to turn your kayak, play some kayak balance games, and finish off with a paddle on the lake. Did I mention you will get wet??? Yes, you will and it will be refreshing!
Prerequisite for this class is a basic understanding about kayaking. For complete topics covered, please refer to the essentials skills page.
