A 101 tune-up is a fantastic way to paddle with an instructor and keep moving up the whitewater learning curve.
Whitewater Kayaking Course in Southern California
There is no doubt about it: To excel in river kayaking requires instruction. A tune-up is a fantastic way to go paddle in the afternoon with an instructor and keep moving up the learning curve. Spend a single run fine-tuning the skills you’ve learned so far, as well as trying new challenges. Take this opportunity to try some tighter lines or tougher moves. You’ll have a solid partner to show you the way and to back you up if you need a hand.
