ACA Open Water Coastal Kayak (L4) Skills Assessment

A comprehensive one-day tune-up and assessment of the skills involved in paddling the Open Water ocean environment.  From Surf Landings to Side slips we'll have a go at a wide variety of techniques; all in the context of a day spent playing in our areas' outstanding kayaking environments.  Candidates can expect to leave this class with some refinements of their technique, a clear sense of their progress as a well-rounded sea kayaker, and, potentially, the ACA L4 Skills Award.  Details of the assessment can be found here.  Starting in 2016, this L4 skills assessment is a prerequisite for participation in a L4 Instructor Development Workshop or a L4 Trip Leader Training/Assessment.
