The free clinics and events provided by Next Adventure employees and community members are meant to give paddlers an introduction to different topics or provide entertainment to the community and bring paddlers from various communities whether it is fishing, sea kayaking, recreational, whitewater or SUP paddlers together at the paddling hub of the Northwest Next Adventure Paddle Sports Center. These are truly all inclusive events where the only requirement is the desire to have fun and learn.
