"Season Opener" 3-days of Skills and Play with Todd Wright and Nate - Mount Desert Island, ME


Spring has sprung, and it’s time to get back at it! Kick off your paddling season with 3-days of skills development and challenging play in the excellent kayaking venues of the Mount Desert Island area. Todd Wright (ACA L5 ITE, BCU L5 Coach, BC L4 Coaching Diploma) will join Nate for what is sure to be a fun and productive weekend.

Three days of comprehensive skills development for competent ocean paddlers who are looking for new challenges.  Each day we will choose a venue based on conditions, to make the most of the learning opportunities that surround Mount Desert Island.  Paddling environments will likely include reversing falls, coastal tide-races and rock gardens.

This three-day format will allow us to focus on underlying fundamental themes of paddling performance, applying and refining them in a variety of situations over a number of days.  The relationship that can be developed over a longer course, between coach and participants as well as between the experienced participants, has the benefit of providing for more personal and individualized instruction than is possible in a series of one-day classes.  (Preference will therefore be given to students who are available for all three days of this course.)
