Intro to Kayaking
May 12, 2021
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This class is designed to introduce those who have never kayaked to the sport of kayaking. We will meet at the Kayak Launch located at the Lake Haigler entrance. We will start by covering gear fundamentals such as how to fit it, how to choose a safe kayaking location based on your ability and how to safely and effectively get into and out of your boat. Once we’re out on the water we will cover some basic paddling techniques, teaching paddlers how to move forward, turn, stop their boats and how to reverse. This session is intended to make you feel comfortable on the water while still allowing you to have a fun and safe kayaking experience!
