Intro Pool lesson:

Indoor kayaking lessons are warm, fun, friendly and packed with skills. You'll get familiar with a modern river running kayak and kayak gear. First you will adjust the outfitting and learn to enter and exit the kayak safely. Next practice the basics of boat control.  Work on balance, posture, paddle grip and simple strokes.  Build confidence upside down by learning to stay in the boat. Focus on the "hip snap" and flip the boats with assistance.

This lesson is appropriate for first time kayakers, or those who would like to brush up on their fundamental skills.  It does not focus on the kayak roll.  For rolling specific instruction please see our rolling clinic or private pool lessons.
