Introduction to Inflatable Kayaking

Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Inflatable kayaking is much easier to learn than its hard-shell cousins. The equipment is affordable, easy to transport and easy to store. Take this 3-part class to better understand the benefits, limitations, uses and skills necessary for inflatable kayaking.

Inflatable kayaking is much easier to learn than its hard-shell cousins. The equipment is affordable, easy to transport and easy to store. Take this 3-part class to better understand the benefits, limitations, uses and skills necessary for inflatable kayaking. Each class is half instructional and half practical application on the water. This will not give you all the skills you need to plan an expedition down the Zambezi. It will be a starter course to more education. An appetizer, not a meal. Instructions to each location will be given to participants via email.

Part 1 is a flat-water experience with equipment and paddle basics held at the Wellness Complex. Skills include assorted paddle strokes, getting in and out and equipment selection.

Part 2 is moving water fundamentals on an easier stretch of water. Skills include eddy hopping, ferries and bracing. Location: TBA depending on flow.

Part 3 is held on faster moving water and includes obstacle avoidance and running small rapids. Location: TBA depending on flow.
