Private mentoring (kayak training)

Sometimes, you just want to focus on a single topic, or the sessions available may not fit your requirements. A personal instruction with me, may be exactly what you are looking for. This truly is a session which can be customized with your goals in mind. We can start the process by communication (either by phone, or email) and identifying your project in mind. From there, I will lay out a training program, highlighting your specific outcome. Limitations on what I can teach others are dictated by the ACA.

Sea Kayak, paddle, life vest, and other kayak related items needed for completion of you goals will be provided in the cost (paddle clothing will be your responsibility).

Location of classroom will be dependent on your goals in mind – and will be provided prior to class. Local waterways will be used.

There is a two hour minimum, four hour maximum session for each private lesson.

Please also register for this to ensure there is availability.

Basic two hour class $110

Three hour class $150

Four hour class $200

Learning how to Roll a kayak

Built for the more advanced paddler, the roll is a form of self rescue. This 3 hour session will have a classroom setting prior to getting on the water. The intention for this session is to grasp the dynamics – the kayak, the body, and blade – how they all move through the water, and working with the physics of water. A solid roll doesn’t happen easily for everyone and you may not be successful after the first session. Understanding this, I will also offer an additional follow up class for $50 (2 hour max).  We shall focus on these main topics:

  • Understanding the roll

  • Defining the different types of rolls – c to c, sweep, extended paddle, Eskimo

  • Paddle position for each of the types

  • Body mechanics – the lower separates from the upper body

  • Putting it all together

  • What helps – flexibility, working on ‘hip snaps’, practice, paddle float

Location for this class will be contained within a small quiet lake – locally. This may be at Yahr park, Little Cedar Lake, Random Lake, or Lake Michigan. You will be notified of location once registered.  Sea kayak, paddle, and PFD can be made available (and included in the price), should you need to use our gear.

 

Once you click on the ‘Add to cart’, you will be redirected to a registration page to complete.

Initial class $75

Initial plus additional 2 hour future class $125
