QuickStart Your Kayak
QuickStart is a brief introduction to paddling a canoe or kayak. Students are presented with basic information on dressing to paddle safely and potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddle skill set is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water.
While designed as a stand-alone, introductory course, QuickStart students often progress to the successive Intro Canoe or Intro Kayak courses to acquire greater paddling skill through significantly increased guided, on-water practice time.
