The whitewater tactics is a two day, 6 hour clinic is designed for both class II kayakers interested in developing the boat control and awareness required in class III environments and for more experienced paddlers wishing to refine their skills inventory and move from river running to making complex moves with accuracy. This will be a fun; student centered learning experience that will focus on core paddling technique and the boat, body, blade and brain relationship. The clinic is limited to 6 students so please register on-line.
