Wednesday Evening Flat Water Kayak Coaching
Flat Water Kayak Coaching
On the Lake:
Every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm - 8:00pm, June 1 - August, 2016 we offer a free hour of flatwater kayak coaching followed by a snack/pot-luck
Lake Sammamish State Park, Tibbetts Beach.
Free for all Kayak Academy alumni, Mountaineers kayakers, WKC, SSKC, Seattle Meet-up Kayakers, and WWTA members.
Come paddle after work with Kayak Academy and friends on Lake Sammamish. A 20 minute Skill Session starts at 6:30 or take a 3-mile fitness paddling trip. River kayakers and Greenland paddlers come practice rolling. It's all good and a great way to stay in shape and prep for your weekend adventures.
Bring your own kayak and wet suit or dry suit (or call ahead to reserve rental equipment to be picked up at the lake). If bringing your own sea kayak, we recommended using a kayak cart for transporting your kayak from the parking lot to the lake. K.A. provides free refreshments and pizza afterward, bring a dish to pass we'll have a pot-luck.
Beginners need prior safety training - this isn't a guided tour or lesson.

Some Wednesday nights May - July, schedule tbd for 2016, we offer river kayaking trips. For more info click: White-Water Trips
