Advanced Boat Control (Columbia Gorge, Oregon)

Whether you are paddling on a lake or in ocean rock gardens, being able to control your boat, while staying upright, is both fun and essential.

The beautiful Columbia Gorge can offer a variety of conditions and this class is adaptable to work with them. If the winds come up we will use this opportunity to work on paddling in the wind, on a calmer day the focus can be on challenging maneuvers.

In this class you will learn to utilize and redefine core strokes and be introduced to advanced strokes, including supportive strokes, that will increase comfort and maneuverability in wind and rough water, advancing your skills to the next level. Dynamic paddling builds on strong foundation skills. Learning how to to combine and blend strokes is a key element of becoming a dynamic paddler. Making the connection between core skills and new techniques will build confidence and a solid foundation. 

Venues and conditions can change, so does this class. It will be tailored to the venue and where it is posted or requested, such as wind or rock gardens.

Pending forecast, this class will be held at Stevenson or Cascade Lock
