Learn to apply the techniques you learned during our Kayak Basics Class!

This is an extremely valuable class for the recreational boater to attend.  Basic River Running is moving water instruction that deals with controlling your kayak on the river.  You will learn to perform a variety of maneuvers that will improve your paddling ability, promote confidence, and help you to identify and avoid hazards encountered on the river.  The skills you learn during this class… you’ll use for years to come.

This class meets at Whitewater Warehouse at 5:15.  The class will be held on the Mad River and runs from 6:00-8:30 p.m.  We offer small class ratios.  Dress to get wet.  Minimum of three participants required.  Space is limited & reservations are required.  Fee:  $65; additional $10 fee to rent equipment (if needed); plus tax.   (See promotion below).
