Level 2: Essentials of River Kayaking Skills Course
Roosevelt Swim Center, Waterloo Street, Rapid City, SD, USA
Get a taste for whitewater and learn the basics of kayaking moving water. We’ll learn about hydrology, river features, and how to maneuver your kayak through the current with eddy turns, ferries, and peel-outs. Day 1 of this course will be indoors where we will develop a level of comfort in a kayak. Day 2 will take us outside at Canyon Lake and on Rapid Creek. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to kayak through small rapids, avoid hazards, stay safe and will be well on your way to paddling class I-II rapids. Tuition covers use all the kayaking gear including a boat, paddle, skirt, PFD, helmet, splash jacket/pants along with pool fees. The student will provide appropriate footwear (old tennis shoes, aqua socks or neoprene booties), dress appropriately (shorts or leggings) to comfortably get in/out of boats, bring towels and a change of dry clothing for after class. If you have your own equipment, we encourage you to bring it. See you on the water!
NOTE: Class is dependent upon water flow and conditions, students will be notified if levels are not appropriate for safe kayaking.Register Here
