This kayak class is taught at a more laid-back pace than the regular Kayak 101 class, and is great for adults wanting to learn the basics.
Easygoing Whitewater Kayaking 101 Class
If you have the enthusiasm but it’s been a while since you worked out the cobwebs, this is the class for you. These classes are taught at a more laid-back pace than a regular whitewater kayaking 101 class, and students learn the basic skills necessary to whitewater kayak successfully. Kayaking calls on muscles to move in new and different ways, and tends to push your flexibility.
