All three venues offer a variety of conditions allowing instructor’s and coaches to build paddlers from the ground up. All of our venues are no more than an hour drive in any direction. This is a great opportunity to gain training and teaching skills from one of the most well respected and well known rough water coaches in the world. While gaining the experience and confidence needed to lead fellow paddlers in such conditions.
