* Tipping without FlippingTipping without Flipping

Time: 7:00 pm

The purpose of this class is introduce students to techniques that help prevent capsize and to get familiar with how to edge the boat. Anyone that wants to roll should start here. Students gain underwater comfort by doing wet exits and playing in an upside down boat while in the pool. We focus on understanding connections between boat and body. We will teach you the correct use of upper and lower body with the kayak on edge then add the paddle to achieve maximum effect. By the end of class, we turn on the waves in the wave pool and the real fun begins! CLICK on the link for more...
