Essentials of Touring:Advanced Kayak Lessons  The best way to learn to sea kayak is to take a full day kayak course that covers outfitting, strokes and rescues. This is a class that goes several steps beyond our Intro to Kayak Class by spending more time on the strokes in the morning and focusing on rescues skills in the afternoon. This is a comprehensive 4-5 hour kayak class that covers a wide range of skills and techniques. Plenty of time is provided to practice and refine each skill in order to maximize efficiency and build your overall confidence. Topics covered are essential kayaking equipment, how to hold and use your paddle, proper kayaking posture and kayak fit, lifting and carrying your kayak, how to launch and land and how to perform a wet exit. While on the water you will be introduced to propulsion strokes, sweep strokes, ruddering strokes as well as edging and bracing. Having a chance to practice wet exits allows you to increase your confidence as we move into assisted and self rescues. During the afternoon you get a chance to refine your skills as we practice several of the essential rescue techniques solo and assisted.
