Trips are built around our core philosophy of developing independent paddlers. Build your skills and accelerate your learning in real-life conditions with multiple days of coaching.
Our low student-coach ratios allow us to embrace the environment offering challenges that are accessible and fun. Skills we focus on could include eddy turns, ferries, surfing, river running strategies, river safety, and rescues. We work hard to facilitate a collaborative and community-centered learning experience.
Each trip begins with a group discussion of goals and aspirations. In order to maximize learning, the first day on the water is typically a warm-up and skills benchmarking day on accessible whitewater. The remainder of the trip will take the best advantage of current conditions and the group learning outcomes.
Each of the destinations offers a range of paddling environments so we can choose the optimal conditions for the group.
