As a new class for 2014, this class will reinforce and polish a wide variety of skills over four weeks at the intermediate level in a fast-paced boot camp format. Students will spend 30 minutes focusing on a few fundamental skills of recovery, boat control, or fitness before rotating to the next learning zone. The final 30 minutes is spent one on one with instructors working on skills of the student’s choosing. The short, focused learning periods will help avoid frustration associated with overlearning while the four week duration will allow for noticeable progress in skills and fitness. You will come away from the class exhausted and having made great progress!
This class is suitable for someone who has already learned the basics of kayaking and is ready to commit the fundamentals to muscle memory. The class structure will improve your bracing, roll, strokes, and overall ability in your kayak.
