Kayak Safety Basics

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Have you purchased a new kayak? Would you like some education to help you to become a better, more skilled paddler? The backwaters at Pinicon Ridge Park are a great place to practice and learn about open water kayaking, but in a controlled backwater setting, rather than out on a river channel, where current would need to be addressed. Join ACA certified kayak instructors as we cover Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), equipment, river etiquette, where to paddle and safety. We will practice basic strokes, graceful entry and exit of a kayak and more. This session should be helpful to even experienced paddlers but is ideal for those just getting their feet wet. Participants must provide their own gear, boats, paddles, etc. Pre-registration required. Join us near the Watercraft Rental Building within the park.
