Intro to Kayaking Workshop

Interested in getting into whitewater kayaking? Get acquainted with the basic skills needed to be a self-sufficient whitewater kayaker during this two-part workshop!

During part one, you will learn about different types of kayaks, how to choose a boat, how to fit in the boat and what to do if and when you kayak flips over.

During part two, we'll focus on the hip snap technique, how to flip an overturned kayak and basic rescue skills.

To reserve your spot: submit $5 online in advance or pay in person at the pool at the beginning of the workshop if spots are still available.

What to bring: plan on wearing a swimsuit and/or clothes you can submerge in the pool, as well as a towel.  Venture will rent you all kayaking-specific equipment at no additional charge!

Part 1: Wednesday, Jan. 23; 6:30-8 p.m.
