#OPT OUTSIDE...Hudson River work off that turkey paddle.
Ok kayakers, you know turkeys don't paddle! Black Friday does not apply to Kayak Specialty Stores like The River Connection so weather permitting I'd rather go kayak on a Friday rather than be in the Store. The Store will be open after the paddle so if anyone would like to partake of the the Small Business Saturday Specials a tad early, that's fine! :) The Course Esopus Island - Black Creek - Esopus Lighthouse - The Olde Picnic Pavilion and return to Mills-Norrie State Park. Equipment Required Kayak with fore/aft floatation of 13' or longer, Drysuit (Winter is here!), layering to comfort under said drysuit, hand/head/footwear for a Watersport, Lifejacket - must be worn, Sprayskirt (unless a absolute diehard and you're paddling a surfski), paddle, self rescue equipment and the practice in using them.

What we're about

The River Connection Paddler group is for kayakers looking for greater performance (and fun) from their time on the water.

Outings can be Instruction/Performance related or casual getaways. The tenor is dictated by the group dynamics.

The River Connection is equipped by our year round retail store The River Connection, Inc. carrying P&H, Valley, North Shore and Venture kayaks, paddles by Werner, Mitchell and Saltwood, gear and garb by Kokatat, Astral Designs, Stohlquist, Thule, Marco Kayak Saddles.

The River Connection programs are most often launched from our own private Boathouse/Harbor at 30 River Road, Hyde Park, NY at the Hyde Park Landing. This is where we house our Fleet of Demo/Instructional Kayaks and equipment. We also feature other programs elsewhere on the Hudson River as well as the Long Island Sound.
