New Meetup: Exkursion Coastal Kayak Skills Class - Keystone State Park

From: Mike C
Sent on: Thursday, July 22, 2010 9:27 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Pittsburgh Kayakers (ka-"yack"-ers)!

What: Exkursion Coastal Kayak Skills Class - Keystone State Park

When: Saturday, October 2,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Keystone State Park
Keystone State Park
Derry, PA 15627

"Looking to take on the challenges of oceans and the Great Lakes? This course gets you ready for coastal conditions: launching and landing in surf, paddling in wind and waves, rescues, towing, communication, and seamanship for the sea kayaker". Suggested prerequisite: Level III

$70 if Exkursion provides the equipment (kayak, paddle, PFD)
$55 if you bring your own kayak and gear (touring kayaks required)
You MUST pre-register with Exkursion at[masked] to take the class, even if you're bringing your own gear.

The class is held on the beach at Presque Isle State Park in Erie. It's fun and adventurous, especially when the wind and water are lively! I took the class last year; in addition to the planned instruction, we scrambled off the water at Gull Point for a brief thunderstorm and did a little surfing on 2' swells. If you want to progress in the sport and prepare yourself for more challenging trips than the Pittsburgh area can offer, this is a great place to start! -Mike
