Paddle Smart®

Introduction to Paddle Sports. Learn how to safely navigate the water with a canoe or kayak. We will teach you about the different types of paddle crafts & the safety gear necessary to have onboard. We’ll show you how to use your paddle craft and the different paddling techniques and safety practices. But mostly, we’ll teach you how to have fun safely. You may get wet, so bring a towel, a change of dry clothes, sunscreen, a hat or visor, and a water bottle.

This seminar is intended for those about to join the sport and those considering purchasing equipment. It covers terminology, equipment, and safety practices. Following an hour of classroom instruction, students get on-the-water instruction and practice in kayaks.  Attendees will receive a copy of the materials presented during the seminar.

Members $35, non members $45. Payment can be made via Paypal. ($10 can be applied to membership).

Optional material
“The Complete Sea Kayaker’s Handbook” by Shelly Johnson ($20) can be ordered.

Boating and paddling are fun… We’ll show you how!
