Day 1: The first day, you will be introduced to whitewater kayaks and paddling gear. Youâ€™ll discover you CAN easily get out of the boat, and weâ€™ll learn a few basic strokes to put you in control.
Before lunch, you will gain the confidence to take an afternoon trip down a short, smooth section of river!
Once on the river, youâ€™ll begin to learn how to maneuver your sleek river craft and be introduced to the mysteries of the T-Rescue â€“ a cool method for coming right back up if you tip over.
Day 2: The next morning your instructor will introduce core competencies and maneuvers, such as forward strokes, high/low braces, eddy turns, and finally the Eskimo roll. These skills will form a strong foundation on which to build throughout the class. The afternoon will be spent on the river, applying such skills, testing abilities, and gaining confidence on the water. While we will stick to the easy rapids, youâ€™ll begin to feel the freedom of moving around on the river, going where you want to go!
Day 3 & 4: By day 3, youâ€™ll continue to hone the necessary skills learned in days 1 and 2, as well as start playing in the rapids, learning your limits of stability, risking tip-overs and discovering the fun and excitement the river holds. Before long, you will begin to anticipate your next move, reacting to each and every wave. By the end of day 4, youâ€™ll have the skills and confidence you need to start running rapids.
