San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and the Marin Headlands are perfect locations for advanced coastal kayaking with strong tidal currents, powerful swells and changeable weather conditions providing an abundance of learning opportunities and easy access to Advanced Open Water conditions.

Ryan Rushton and Sean Morley invite you to participate in a comprehensive, informative and challenging three or six days of instructor training and/or certification.

The dates of the course have been chosen to dovetail with the Paddle Golden Gate symposium hosted by California Canoe & Kayak.

DETAILS: The first three days of the course will be an Instructor Development Workshop (IDW). The last three days will be an Instructor Certification Exam (ICE). You may choose to the 3 day IDW, the 3 day ICE or all six days. Attending either the first three or the last three days of this course will also count as a Level 5 Update. The goal of the program will be to provide a supportive learning environment in authentic level 5 conditions. You will invigorate your teaching, broaden your coaching ability and build your experience teaching and paddling in one of the most dynamic coastal kayaking locations in the world.

Please check the ACA Instructor Criteria to be sure that you are eligible for the training and/or assessment.
