Fundamentals of Kayaking (Instruction)

Are you new to kayaking or have been paddling for a while, but never had the opportunity to learn good technique? This course is for you. We will cover: handling your kayak on shore, entering and exiting the kayak, forward stroke, basic turns, stopping, going backwards, sideward movement, stability, wet exits and sample some assisted rescues.  Prepare to get wet and have fun!

Mike Cavanaugh & Alan Mapes are ACA Certified Instructors and have conducted training programs for our Meetup group for the past 2 seasons.

    Can you clarify where it will be held? The first site says Round Lake, then when you click "learn more" it says Snyders Lake.

      Yes, Gino. This is designed to help people get started with kayaking. If you have never paddled before, it is perfect since you have not developed to bad habits like self-taught kayakers. It's all about form and storing it in "muscle memory".
