Kayak and Canoe Classic Weekends~
Our Specialty!-Level 0-6
Total Immersion, Total Fun!
The Kayak and Canoe Classic Weekends are a great immersion into the world of paddlesports! This course can also be used as a great way to advance your skills! We love to taper this course to our customers needs!
Friday 6:30pm-9:00pm. This gives us a chance to get to know everyone, and find out how we can best meet your needs. We will then work on the fundamentals of kayak rolling.
Saturday 8:00am-5:00pm. We will have a full day of water immersion! We will start with good explanations of the boat and equipment, and then basic whitewater safety. Soon, you will be in your boat working on balance and correct stroke technique in order to run the rapids at the New Rio Vista Falls Park! We will run these drops, as well as work on maneuvering in the current and reading water. Before lunch you will be surfing!
At lunch (we provide) we will watch a video highlighting swiftwater rescue, and will review the mornings progress!
After lunch we will work our way downstream from the Power Olympic Outdoor Center, to our lower loop rapids. You will get to play on a 4ft drop and continue to work on crossing currents and manuevering with the water. If you choose you can run our 14ft. Graduation Falls at the end of the day! We will then have just a short paddle back to the center!! No shuttle needed.
Sunday 8:00am-3:00pm. You will have an opportunity to further develop your paddling skills on another beautiful stretch of river. Depending on the skill of the group we will either head to the Comal River, the Guadalupe River, or the lower San Marcos, River. We will work extensively on rolling.
This course may be modified for Flatwater, Recreational Kayaks, and Canoes!!
