MAINE WHITE WATER KAYAKING INTERMEDIATE COURSE
Day One will begin in the morning with an on-water evaluation. During this time, the needs of all participants will be determined to properly cater the course to each individual. We will also review basic skills to ensure that each student has developed proper and safe form as a kayaker. After completing the morning session, we will go to the river for an afternoon of whitewater fun!
Day Two begins with a trip to the river to work on identifying river hazards and review white water rescue techniques. This will prepare us for an afternoon of running whitewater and learning play boating skills. We will explore our options of running other Maine rivers in the area for a day of whitewater skill development while seeing new and exciting rivers. This optional river trip will depend on Mother Nature and the collective goals of the students. We will focus on advanced white water kayaking skills throughout this course. Come paddle with us!
