Suggested progression: Happiness Upside Down, Blade Awareness / Boat Control, Rescue/ Bracing, Rolling

Happiness Upside Down | $60
Being chill while hanging upside down is critical to every other paddling skill.  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.   Once you’re happy capsizing and hanging out there for a few seconds, you’ll be in the best place to learn the roll.

Self Rescue / Bracing | $60
The self-rescue is essential to being an independent paddler. We will work on safely and efficiently getting you back in your boat.  Not tipping over is almost always better than capsizing.  Bracing also is a component skill to learning to roll a kayak.  We’ll cover the essentials of connectivity with the boat, safe body positions, effective blade technique and putting it all together to stay upright.

No more dates are availble this season.


Blade Awareness / Boat Control | $60

Fine-tune your boat control and maneuvers with precision and grace.  We’ll explore a range of skills to help you go where you want to go.

*April 14th time is adjusted – 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Rolling | $60

Structured rolling instruction is available at each pool session this season. Kayak 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 semi-private 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.

*April 14th session is 7pm – 9pm
