Beginner kayakers should register for Level 1 to learn the importance of the fundamentals: equipment fit, rolling, strokes, and river maneuvers. Each day serves as a building block for the next with a strong emphasis on safety awareness. Daily workouts will develop skills quickly. Once "patrollers" show a moderate degree of proficiency and comfort, we'll be paddling in class II-III whitewater and learn to surf standing waves. Level 1 also teaches documentary skills with the use of video and still cameras. Each patroller will keep a logbook of their experiences and the group will post updates to their own internet blog.$695 | Details...
