Family Kayaking 101, Beginning Sea Kayak Safety Skills
Beginning Family Sea Kayak Safety Skills at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah Washington
Has it been a while since you’ve capsized? Do you and your family or group of friends want to improve your sea kayaking skills and become comfortable wet exiting? If so, you need to take this course!
“Kayaking is more fun once you’ve overcome the fear of capsizing”. Your youth will tell you they like being in the water as much as in the kayak so practicing safely exiting is just fun.
The instructors are patient and well trained to help families work through new skills together. In addition to wet exits, they will put you on the path to an efficient forward stroke and show you how to turn and steer a straight course with and without rudders.
Prerequisites: Everyone should be able to swim and well enough to be comfortable putting their head under water and able to swim the freestyle/front crawl stroke or breaststroke without a buoyancy aid. Minimum age– eight (8) years old.
