Fun Start Kayak Class

Our Fun Start Kayak Class is designed to give students the fundamentals of kayaking through a fun and safe environment. Students will learn basic kayaking skills for recreational and sea kayaks. Start with proper kayak and gear fit and how to launch your kayak from shore. After assisting students with the proper fit the instructors will guide each student through the steps of a wet exit (how to get out of your kayak in case of a capsize.) Then work on the basic kayak strokes: going forward, stopping, reversing and turning. Self and assisted rescues will be introduced. Practicing how to wet exit safely and get back in a kayak from deep water are two skills all kayakers should have before paddling a sit-inside sea kayak or recreational kayak without a guide beside them.

Preregistration is required. Kayak, life jacket and paddle are provided.

The Fun Start Kayak Class is limited to 6 students.
