Comfort in Conditons

Take your paddling to the next level. Confidence and solid foundation skills are often the key.

This class has been designed by Bill Vonnegut (About Bill) to accelerate your paddling skills in dynamic water. Bridging the gap between a knowledge of skills and applying them in the conditions you have always wanted to paddle.

Supportive strokes and bracing will be one focus of this class, because recovery techniques are often preferable to a roll. Strategies for paddling in wind, waves and rough water rescues will also be addressed.

By increasing your confidence and refining technique, you will find yourself with a new level of skill and comfort both in and out of your boat.

This class will be launching from Horseshoe Cove and (conditions permitting) will head out the Golden Gate. It is intended for sea kayakers who have experience paddling on open water such as San Francisco Bay, some Open Coast and Surf Zone experience.  A combat roll is not required but recommended, as we will work on refining your roll.

COST: $129 (Minimum Enrollment: 3; Maximum Enrollment: 5)
