Coastal Kayak 1: Intro to Coastal Kayaking and Paddling in Conditions
It's time to expand your paddling horizons! At this point, you've built your skills through our kayak touring and now your ready to test them in a new and comfortable environment: salt water. Have no fear, we will be paddling and practicing our strokes, maneuvers and rescues on the protected portions of Tillamook Bay, while adding in new lessons about tides and the intricacies of paddling in a dynamic environment. This course is designed to bridge the gap between our Kayak Touring series and our Coastal Kayak series, providing real life conditions to paddle in that will help give you confidence in your skills and abilities. This will be an all day activity due to the time it takes to get to and from the coast; trust us, it is worth it.
