Details: These moving water coached canoe workshops are ideal for anyone looking to practice or develop greater skills on the river. We will individually address your needs, your frustrations, your desire for new skills or techniques. Focused training, focused learning—repetition is the key to perfection.

You will be exposed to proven techniques that will improve your skills in Body/ Boat/Blade awareness, eddy turns, peel-outs, ferries and surfing. The real fun begins when we practice linking moves up and down the river.

These are ongoing, monthly workshops. Beginning on April 9, we’ll meet on the second Thursday afternoon of the month at 3:00 pm and play until dark. Sessions will run through the second Thursday of October. 

Please bring the following equipment:

  • Canoe—solo or tandem
  • Paddle and spare
  • Helmet
  • Throw Bag
  • PFD
  • River Shoes
  • Water Bottle/Snacks
  • Weather/Season/Water Temperature-Appropriate Clothing
