We have reached our registration limit for this class. We are accepting waitlist requests. Our next intro to kayak class is scheduled for August 27.
This is the first in our PSC Training Series, Introduction to Paddling for Canoe & Kayak. It will be held at Oakhurst FP, a sheltered lake in Aurora. This ACA certified course will teach you the basics of paddling your kayak. Some paddling strokes you will learn include: fwd, rev, stop, spin (pivot), sideways (abeam), turning and many other skills to paddle your craft skillfully on calm protected waters.
Participants will need to bring their own boat, paddle, PFD, snacks, lunch, and all personal items. Instructors will contact participants prior to the event with special instructions or equipment needs.
