Introduction to Kayaking

Students will  learn the basics you need to know to paddle a kayak safely and effectively. Using sit-on-top kayaks, you will learn how to control your boats. Next you will learn some maneuvers and techniques that make kayaking more fun and safe. Then we're off to tour Channel Islands Harbor for a chance to use your new skills in action. Be sure to wear clothes that you will be comfortable as you will be getting wet.

Kayaking 101

Class: meet twice for two weeks on Fridays or Saturdays. 6 hours of instruction.

Channel Islands Harbor with its open space and sheltered waters is the perfect place to experience kayaking. With our sit-inside kayaks, participants will soon realize just how stable, fast and fun kayaking can be as they glide through the water. They will learn topics such as launching/landing, safe boat handling, parts of the kayak, being physically fit, equipment essentials, paddle strokes, and rescue techniques. With their new-found knowledge and confidence, participants will be paddling out into the ocean if the conditions permit. The course will also break down the fundamental strokes to become more efficient while introducing more advanced strokes and braces.
