Sea kayaking basic skills / refresher @ Fergs

Get ready AW kayaking activities with a sea kayaking refresher/basic skills course!

This Level 1 course is compulsory for everyone doing kayaking trips with AW.

Cost: $55  (payable at Fergs on the day) - this is a 20% discount for AW members.

This fee is Still payable if you no Show or change your RSVP within 48 hours of this meet up

(minimum 7 attendees or the lesson will not go ahead)

What's included: Two hours of instruction from Fergs Kayaks with your own sea kayak, paddle, buoyancy aid and spray skirt.

Where we meet: Inside Fergs Kayaks.

What to wear: YOU ARE GOING TO GET WET. This course involves learning how to rescue yourself and others in the ocean -- so it involves practice! So, wear togs with merino or polyprop over the top - don't wear long pants, denim and no cotton t-shirts. Cotton is not your friend in a kayak — it does not dry well and dissipates heat quickly. The water temps are much cooler than the air temperatures. Wool or synthetics are the way to go. If you have a wetsuit (farmer jane/farmer john), that would be ideal. Neoprene paddling shoes or dive booties are great too.


This Meetup will be reliant on the weather and is subject to last-minute cancellation. If this occurs, it will be rescheduled.

No Shows and withdrawl within 48 hours of meet up

The $55 fee is still payable

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
