On-Line SWR topics / Q&A with instructors
These courses will be held on Tuesday & Thursday evenings at 6:30pm Starting January
We've made a few adjustments so we can still get a lot of these land-based Swift Water Rescue topics out while we wait on vaccines to hopefully end the pandemic (covid - 19) our country & world has encountered. We will be adapting to our environment till we can get back to normal. We will start having in-person courses as this situation plays out.
Learn tips & tricks as planning your next trips. This course will go over - pre-planning, pre-launch Safety talks, things you should know about your group, managing group on the river, gear that you should have, where to store gear, & how to prepare for the unknown. Safe trips = fun trips with new paddlers finding a new found love that they'll share with you. On the other hand one bad experience on the river for a new paddler could/will run them away from ever floating again
Learn how to choose what kayak is right for you from the hundreds of kayaks on the market today. This course is designed to to help paddlers choose a kayak that they'll be needing for the environment it'll used in. This course doesn't endorse any brand yet will go over how a kayak should be designed for what you'll be using it for. We'll be teaching what makes a kayak hull design go fast, be stability, track well, carve, & what design is right for your personnel paddling style. I will also be going over materials kayaks are made out of.
