This is will be an exciting weekend of learning to Whitewater Kayak. We will teach you the basic skills that create the foundation for the rest of your paddling career. We emphasize safe practices using whitewater kayaking equipment and teach you how to use it comfortably. Get a taste for whitewater and beautiful scenery, on the San Marcos River. With the beautiful trees and the crystal clear river as a backdrop, learn about hydrology, river features, and how to maneuver your kayak through the current with eddy turns, ferries and peel-outs. The skills you learn here will help you to kayak through the rapid, avoid hazards and keep you safe. In addition, we add to your knowledge base more advanced and fun river running skills - SURFING the wave and rolling the kayak. At the end of the trip you will be well on your way to paddling class II- III rapids.
We will cover the American Canoe Association Level 2 and Level 3 Curriculum including learning to roll a kayak.
