Full-Day Intermediate Paddling Lessons
The Intermediate River class was developed for students who have been paddling for a while but are not confident in reading whitewater, are unsure about moving up in river difficulty, or would like more time with an instructor to refine various skills. Our instructors are professional level kayakers who can teach you any of the skills you would like to learn.
This class will start out with a session in our private pool that will cover skills such as rolling, paddling, and effective bracing strokes. In the afternoon we will paddle the Klickitat River and focus on advanced river running techniques such as utilizing aggressive eddies, making harder ferries, punching big holes, and surfing waves.
Cost: $150 Group Rate: $120 (sign up with 3 or more)
