River Kayaking 206
River Kayak Training Trips, Part 2
Want to run white water rivers with friends and clubs? Our River Kayak Training Trips Part 2 will give you the training needed get you there. This two-day course takes beginning whitewater kayakers and trains them up for running Class II and II+ whitewater rivers. We won't be doing cartwheels in this lesson, just the basics of boat control, hazard avoidance, scouting and running rapids, and surfing on standing waves. In other words, the fun stuff!
The rough water practice that Class II white water offers will speed up your learning curve for developing a higher level of bracing skill and provide opportunities for combat roll experience. The skills gained from this whitewater kayaking course lead you to becoming a safer, more confident kayaker.
We can provide dry suits and river kayaks to match your skill and size (unless you prefer to use your own river kayak).
To assure you receive plenty of individual instruction, we limit our class size to a maximum of four students.
We'll review bracing and rolling and extend your safety knowledge to include river hazards and some basic river rescues. You will get two days of hands-on white water kayaking experience including running a Class II+ rapids (rivers are classified I to VI in ascending order of difficulty).
Prerequisites for this course are a reliable roll (at least on one side in practice situations) and confidence kayaking class I+ and II- rapids. If you need to work on these skills, see our RK 120 River Kayak Training Trips Part 1 course.
