This is the perfect introduction to whitewater kayaking. By the end of this course you will be paddling and grinning your way down class two rapids with confidence and skill.
We follow logical progressions that keep you challenged and learning quickly. This is a solid introduction to whitewater kayaking and the foundation for a whole new dimension of fun. Many members do an intro course early season to give themselves the rest of the summer to practice or join our many river trips. But it's never too late to get started!
Locations: We run most of our intro clinics at Palmer Rapids on the Madawaska River. The water is warm and clean and the variety of rapids are appropriate for developing new skills. This program is based from the Paddler Co-op Boathouse—our site is located on the shores of the Madawaska River, just a short paddle to the rapids.
Dates for 2015: These courses run every week & weekend from May to October and are provided on a first come first served basis. Call or email us to book your course: firstname.lastname@example.org.
