Forward Stroke Class with Chuck Conley

  • May 12, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • Lake Smith

You spend 99% of your paddling going forward.  It makes sense to ensure you are efficient. Come out and learn how to do it right!  We'll do drills on land and in the water, then video and critique your forward stroke and see what you've learned!

This class is for sea kayakers, competitive paddlers, kayak fishermen and really anyone who paddles a kayak ever.  Bring your boat, paddle and life jacket and be ready to learn some things!  We'll be on the water for a while so make sure you have something to drink, your sunscreen and maybe even a little snack.

    I think all that predicted rain came sooner than they thought, so by Sunday it will be all gone!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
