The most important course a paddler can take. This is for all skill ranges and will be tailored for the overall makeup of the class. The outline for this class is followed closely, but their will be impromptu and additional lessons as we go on a shake out paddle in the last hour of the class. We will be on and off the water numerous times during the class, both for instruction and to hydrate and eat. Your endurance will be tested as this is a physically demanding course. The more effort put into it, the greater the results and higher confidence you will gain.
