Kayak 101: Beginner Kayak Clinic

Class Overview

 

Evolutionary Aquatics’ Kayak 101 Beginner Kayak Clinic is a 2-hour clinic designed to get you excited about paddling and spending time on the water! This class will introduce you to the fundamentals of flat-water kayaking in a comfortable setting and at a relaxed pace. No prior kayaking experience is necessary. 

 

During the class, you will:

  • learn how to handle your kayak, launch your kayak in the water, and stay comfortable in a sit-on-top kayak

  • learn and practice basic kayak paddle strokes including forward, reverse, and sweep paddle strokes

  • identify hazards and learn basic water safety

  • practice your newly learned skills by taking a tour of the calming water of the Catawba River in a sit-on-top kayak 

  • enjoy post-class snacks and fellowship

 

The Kayak 101 Beginner Kayak Clinics are held once a month at at 724 Elm Avenue, Mount Holly, NC. 

 

Adults age 18 years or older can participate in the clinic. Unfortunately at this time, we do not have clinics for anyone age 17 years or younger.
