Basic Kayaking

Ages 12+

This course is designed to introduce the beginning paddler to the three most widely used recreational kayaks, correct paddling techniques, and navigation and safety on Lake Natoma.  The first day of instruction will start with sit on top Kayaks, then move to a more technical boat known as the surf ski (a fiberglass ‘sit-on-top’ kayak with a rudder).  The second day will incorporate all of the skills in a Viking touring boat (a fiberglass boat with an upper deck and ‘cockpit’).  Our ACA certified instructors create a friendly, welcoming environment for all participants, regardless of age, ability, or skill.  Once you have completed this course, you are eligible to rent any equipment in which you have shown competence in throughout the class. 

You must register for this class in advance.
