River Kayaking Basics

August 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC-5

Rivers are fun to paddle. The current can make a long day on the water easy, or it can make it very tiring. Propper form and technique can help you enjoy the most a river has to offer. From riding the current to relaxing in an eddy, even safely exploring a sidestream. We will spend an afternoon learning paddle strokes, reading a river and using the current, as well as safety on moving water. We will start by using the area of the schuylkill around riverfront park including the manatawny, then we will do a short river trip to practice the skills just learned. Anyone who is interested in learning new skills or honing existing ones, is welcome to attend. Space will be limited to keep the group to a 1:5 instuctor/student ratio. Cost:$45 With rental: $60
