This course starts at the beginning with how to: fit a kayak, hold a paddle, do a wet exit, and paddle a river kayak in a straight line where there isn't any current. Our instructors are patient and well trained to help students work through their anxieties about being upside down in kayak, doing wet-exits and rolls. By the end of the first session you'll be able to make a river kayak go where you want it to in flat water; in the second session we'll take you where there's a bit of current so you can begin to learn the art of crossing eddylines, ferrying, and catching eddies -- these are basic skills needed in order to run whitewater rivers. Note, a short rolling intro/refresher is included, but students who take this RK101 course without an existing roll will generally need to further their roll training after this course - see our 2-hour rolling lessons: RK103, RK203
