Basic Skills Kayaking testimonial

This is my first summer working for Alder Creek, and I have taught the basic skills kayaking class numerous times. Recently I took a few friends out kayaking on the Columbia River, my friends didn’t have a lot paddling experience. One of them tried to reach for a cooler that was located a few feet away and ended up tipping his kayak. I quickly reacted by using a rescue that I teach in my classes. I ended up rescuing him and draining his kayak within several minutes. I was excited that I was able to use the same skills I taught in a real life situation.

It turns out that even the Basic Skills Kayaking class taught here at Alder Creek contains some very useful information that anyone can use!
