$100/3 hr Clinic. Includes kayak, equipment and top notch instruction.(4 hr Combo Clinic $130)

ACA Quick Start Clinic (Intro Clinic) is an introduction to paddling a kayak. Students are presented with basic information on equipment, carrying, launching, landing, dressing to paddle safely, potential hazards and simple rescues. Basic strokes covered; forward, reverse, stopping, turning and wet exit. A perfect course to enhance the skill, safety and enjoyment of the entry level paddler. An ACA participation card is given to students.

Capsize/Recovery Clinic In this class students learn what to do in the event of a capsize. Different assisted and unassisted techniques are taught so you can help yourself or someone else back into the kayak. This is a fun, wet class.

Rolling. To roll you need a good brace. We will fine tune your braces and then work on developing a bombproof roll! Rolling builds on fundamental support skills that often make rolling non-essential, giving us great confidence. Topics covered: draw strokes, low-brace, high-brace, development of hip-snap, rolling the kayak. These are skills every kayaker wants.

Combo. This 4 hour course is a combination stroke and rescue course open to everyone but designed for kayakers who want to finally learn how to paddle efficiently and learn on water rescues.

S.U.P. Clinic This 2 hour clinic is for someone who wants more in depth instruction on the skills and knowledge needed to enjoy the sport of Stand Up Paddling safely and efficiently. Launching, landing, standing, turning, stopping, paddling straight, self recues are just some of skills covered. $80 includes Stand Up Paddleboard, equipment and top notch instruction.
