Early Spring Round Up, Sending March Out Like A Lion

March, the one month in the year that can come in like a lion or out like a lamb. This season it came in like a lamb and out like a lion for training at  New Mexico Kayak Instruction. We kicked off the month with our Level 1, Introduction to Kayaking-Whitewater and Recreation, and our Level 2, The Kayak Roll.  This was quickly followed up by Kelly and Corey attending a professional skills development class in Saluda, North Carolina.


Officially called the Apex River Leadership School, by H20 Dreams. Teaching this class was Chris Wing, a world renowned kayaker, who had just returned from spending his winter in Chile guiding trips, and China as the head judge of a freestyle competition (Read more about H20 Dreams Here).


The Apex River Leadership School was a 9 day class which covered ACA Level IV, update training, Wilderness First Aid, and AED/CPR update training. In addition to these vital updates this awesome class covered a broad range of disciplines to enhance our skills and abilities at New Mexico Kayak Instruction. Additional topics included: Common Sense Rescue Training, Slalom for River Runners, Group Leadership, Freestyle Focus on Playboating, and Creeking.


As we begin to grow at New Mexico Kayak Instruction, our goal is to get the best professional training available. Our continued education will help you advance your skills and confidence on the water.

 

There is no time like the present to enhance your whitewater paddling skills, whether your a rank begginer, seasoned begginer, or a club boater looking to gain the skills and confidence needed to make it to the next level of fun.


This coming April we will again be offering our, Kayaking 101, Getting started in Kayaking (Free) Class; Level 1, Introduction to Kayaking Class; Level 2, The Kayak Roll, and Level 3, Essentials of River Kayaking. Check our Calendar for a complete listing of dates and times.  


Any of our classes are available in a private format, if you have questions please Contact us for more information.
