REI: Introduction to Kayak Touring

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This course is designed for those who want to learn more about kayak touring. Students will learn about proper kayak and gear selection and the essential paddle strokes needed to control your kayak on longer trips and on larger bodies of water, bracing to help prevent capsizes and build your confidence. Lastly, you’ll learn how to safely exit a capsized kayak and re-enter it on the water using a paddle float, and how to T-rescue another capsized kayaker. These skills will become the foundation of your kayaking career, and will enable you to begin to explore new venues safely and responsibly. Kayaking is a wet sport. Instruction includes wet exits and in-water rescues.

Age 14 and up
