This pool-based clinic is a quick introduction to the basics of kayaking. It is ideal if you are wondering if kayaking is for you, or to prepare for travelling somewhere hot this winter! You will be taught how to safely get into and out your kayak and a few of the basic strokes to get you going.
Upon completion of this clinic, you will learn enough about kayaking that you are hungering to get out on the water! You will have basic boat control skills and be able to safely enter and exit your kayak from shore.
