Kayak Safety Basics

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

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 pfd's, 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. Linn County Conservation is inviting you to join us at Eagle View Shelter near the Watercraft Rental building in the park.
