Kayak Essentials Class
May 19, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Intended for the amateur 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. We will have on shore training before actually hitting the water.
Prerequisite for this class is a basic understanding about kayaking (getting in/out – how to paddle forward/stop/reverse, and stability in a kayak). For complete topics covered, please refer to the essentials skills page (https://silentwake.com/your-skills-training/kayak-essentials/).
Class size will be limited to 10. Gear, if needed, is available for up to 8 participants – and is included in the session prices. Training will take place at a local, quiet, protected inland lake. Please dress for the cooler water temperatures, have a change of clothes/towel in your car.
Located at Random Lake, Wisconsin – This Lake has a circumference of nearly 3.5 miles. Majority of this lake has houses surrounding the boundary – with a few exceptions near the northern side, where it has a more of a marsh like feel. There is a restroom present at the shelter – and fresh water available. The parking lot has a short distance away from the beach area/swim area. Majority of time, the boat traffic is either jet skis or pontoon boats. There will be ample wildlife to explore and to view during our included paddle.
