You have learned the basics and you're ready for more. This course requires a general knowledge of paddle strokes, (forward & back paddling, sweeps, braces and draws) the ability to paddle straight on flat water and familiarity with river features. You must also be able to perform eddy turns, ferries and peel outs. A solid roll is great, but if you're working towards one and willing to try T-rescues that's okay.
Beginning with a thorough review of paddle strokes on flat water, your instructor will evaluate your skills and help improve your technique. On the river you'll focus on making crisp eddy turns, peel outs and ferries. While paddling one of the valley's rivers, your instructor will help you understand the subtleties of river currents, reading water, and basic river safety. You will also be introduced to the excitement of play-boating rapids and receive coaching as you learn to surf friendly wavesand holes. If there is time and the group is interested there might be time to practice rolling, but we strongly recommend you take a rolling class tomaster your rolling skills.
We offer 2-day River Running group lessons throughout the year, or you can create your own dates if you get two other friends to join you. See: Custom Group Lessons
