Open Pool time
Happiness Upside Down $50.00. If you are going to learn to roll or even be relaxed about putting your boat on edge, being comfortable being upside down in your boat is essential. We’ve developed a great progression to get you feeling relaxed and unconcerned about being upside down in your kayak. We will move along the progression at a rate that makes you comfortable. For some it may take just a few minutes but for many it may be a full pool session. Once you’re happy capsizing and hanging out there for a few seconds, you’ll be in the best place to learn the roll. The class is 2 hours long but participants are welcome to spend the last half hour of the pool session practicing on their own.
Kayak Rolling $50.00 Rolling is on almost every paddler’s “want” list. There’s not much about rolling a kayak that you will figure out on your own, so learning from a coach that can guide you through a progression is the fastest way to get a roll. Our group rolling lessons are a great way to get started as you’ll have time to rest between one on one sessions with the coach and you’ll be able to learn from observing your fellow student.
Bombproof Your Roll $50.00 . Got a roll that’s mostly working in mellow conditions? We’ll bump the challenge up to simulate real world all-conditions rolling
30 Second Sea Kayak Rescue $50.00 Learning how not to capsize is an essential skill for any paddler, we’ll look at several techniques for staying upright. Can you get someone back into a dry touring kayak in under 30 seconds? If not, let us help you become safer, faster and more efficient in assisted rescues.
River Rescues $50.00 . Fine tune the skills necessary to be an effective rescue on the river. We’ll work recovery options for boats, paddles, and swimmers.
