This 4 hour class is designed for recreational kayakers to learn the all the basics of flatwater paddling. In this class we will meet at 4Corners and begin with a discussion of gear selection, boating safety and boat design. We will be able to spend close to 3 hours of class exploring Lake Nighthorse which is conveniently located just 5 minutes from 4Corners.
During these three hours of paddling, we will discuss proper paddling techniques. This will include practicing our forward, sweep, draw and brace strokes. All of which make paddling in a straight line an easy task, and make going fast feel effortless! So join us every other Thursday morning from 8 until 12 beginning in the last week of May until the middle of August. Call 4Corners and ask about family discounts on this class.
