Kayak Touring Safety and Rescues

Don't have time to jump start your paddling life in a weekend? No worries! Our Quick Start Series takes that information and gives you the freedom to take the classes as you can!
 
Have you ever flipped over on a kayak? Learn the answer to the popular question, "What happens if I flip over?" Hint: it’s not so bad and it's easy! In this flip-friendly class we’ll cover essential rescue techniques, working from simple to complex and encourage problem solving versus "one way or the highway". We guarantee this class will make each student a safer and more confident paddler. Upon the completion of this course each student will be prepared for one of those upside-down events--called a "capsize"--and will possess the tools for a successful rescue, both assisted and unassisted.
