Spend a day refining your abilities to maneuver effectively and efficiently, safely identify ocean play spots, and manage yourself and a group in a variety of coastal venues. Nate Hanson will work with improving and more advanced paddlers, meeting each individual where they are, providing responsive, personalized instruction. At the end of the day, we hope everyone will leave with some new tools, an increased understanding of how our boats, paddles, and bodies interact with our paddling environments, and plenty of excitement about sea kayaking.
This class precedes a Tidal Currents class on Sept. 7th. Because our students tell us how much a day of Coastal Skills training has improved their subsequent learning at Sullivan Falls, we are offering Coastal Skills prior to many of our Tidal Currents classes this season. We hope you'll consider this skills progression if your schedule allows.
Appropriate for paddlers familiar with basic strokes and rescues, and more advanced paddlers as well.
