Kayaking: Beyond the Basics Part 2
August 10, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$75
You’ve got the basic strokes and rescues under your belt and now you want to know about paddling on rivers and streams. In this class we’ll help you transfer the skills you learned in Beyond the Basics Part 1, to moving water. We’ll begin with learning how to “read” the water and take advantage of the way it moves to help put your boat where you want it using maneuvers such as a ferry, peel-out, and eddy turns. Additional safety and rescue practices related to moving water, trip planning, and boat transport will be addressed as well. All necessary equipment is provided, and round-trip transportation from Black Hill Regional Park to river location is included. Meet at the Visitor Center. Please wear clothes that can get wet and hat, strap-on water sandals or shoes (no flip-flops, please), and bring water and sunscreen. Don’t forget to pack a lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. We highly recommend completing our Beginning Recreational Kayaking and Kayaking: Beyond the Basics Part 1 courses first. Participants must be able to swim. FOBH $58
