Using white water equipment, learn the basics of white water, on flat water. This is a primer clinic designed to give you an idea of what whitewater kayaking is all about. We will discuss boat fit and design, paddle design and materials, and go over proper whitewater gear. We will also teach you some whitewater specific paddling techniques. show you how to safely exit the kayak with a sprayskirt on, and work on straight line control in these flat bottomed kayaks.

 Prerequisite: Willingness to spend time in the water - come with a wetsuit minimum. The water will be COLD. If registrants are not dressed for cold water immersion, they may be asked to watch from shore. 

Registration is non-transferable, non-refundable. No refunds will be issued.
