Women’s Whitewater Kayaking Clinic
Grab your skirts ladies, because 4CRS paddle school now offers a women’s specific kayaking course! This full-day clinic is designed for female paddlers, and will be taught exclusively by female instructors.
This introductory level class is designed to teach beginner and intermediate female paddlers the fundamentals of whitewater kayaking and river safety. We will learn the skills and techniques necessary to boost your confidence on the water!
We will cover the basics of how to properly select and care for whitewater gear, then move to our on-site, solar heated pool to learn essential whitewater skills like the wet exit, T- rescue, strokes, and the roll. After lunch, we can head to a calm section of river or lake to perfect one of the most overlooked skills: proper stroke technique.
From there, we will paddle down river through some fun class II whitewater. We will hone river maneuvering techniques like peel outs, eddy turns and ferries. By the end of this course, we hope to have participants feeling much more comfortable on moving water.
The Southwest can have very sudden and unpredictable changes in weather. All classes run rain or shine, unless there are weather related safety concerns. All programs may be changed at our discretion. To keep our classes affordable, we must fill a program with a minimum amount of participants. We reserve the right to cancel the program if the minimum amount of participants is not met. A full refund will be provided if a class is cancelled, and you will be notified no later than 48 hours before the beginning of the class.
