Waves occur in just about every body of water. Getting through the waves while remaining upright can be challenging. The surf zone can be a place for excitement and fun or a location associated with terror, damaged equipment and injury. If it is a big surf day, all of your skills will be put to the test along with your level of conditioning.
Join us for this informative discussion and video presentation designed to provide the paddler with an understanding of the forces you will be dealing with along with recommended skills and drills to help you successfully negotiate your way through the surf zone. This usually is accomplished by intentionally NOT surfing the waves. For you thrill-seekers, techniques used to kayak surf will also be covered.
