River Skillz

We often hear the question, “I have already taken the beginner class, what do I do next?” In order to answer that question, we introduce “River Skillz”. This class will take place on Sundays when the Army Corps of Engineers plan to release a little more water for recreation. The main focus of the class is to improve your boat handling and river running skills. We will practice and fine-tune the Eskimo roll on flat water and in moving water. There will be an emphasis on getting in and out of eddies using precise body movement, boat control, and paddle placement. Other skills will include but are not limited to:

  • Ferry/back ferry
  • Jet Ferry
  • Attainment
  • Engaging rocks
  • River reading

River Skillz Dates:

  • August 16
  • August 30

Class size will be between 4 and 8 students. Please register early.
