  • This is a beginner class for learning the basics of whitewater kayaking in Class I and II water. Apply the skills you learned in your pool class on this local whitewater course, where we will learn to paddle into and out of eddies, ferry across current, and surf wave holes. To be eligible to participate, you must have taken a CWA pool class or had competent instruction elsewhere (like Bear Paw or the NOC). If you have had no prior whitewater kayak training, you will not be allowed to participate. It is up to the lead instructor to decide if you are ready for this trip.

Registration is closed
