Kayak Video and Pizza Night

Monday's why do we have them? Wishing you were still on the water? Come out and watch "Toxic Waters", a great whitewater kayaking film showing some great destination, like the North Coast. Where is that? Come out and learn. We will provide the room and the video while you can grab a slice of pizza and watch this action packed film.

Kelly is very articulate with great attention to detail.  He comes highly recommended by those who have attended his courses.

Kayak Video and Pizza Night

If your still reeling from the weekend and not ready to settle into the work week, come out for our kayak movie and pizza night. We will be showing LVM #27, (Launch Video Magazine) "The Rockies". This is a great whitewater kayak film showcasing some of the whitewater potential that the Rocky Mountains have to offer. We will see some great action while enjoying some good food. We will bring the movie and hold the room, while you get some pizza and watch the action.

Fantastic! The instruction was top notch. The instructors' attention to detail and focus on safety were superb. The classroom environment was interesting, the class time on the water was a blast, and the attendees had a great time together during and after class around the camp fire. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in kayaking in New Mexico.

Whitewater 101 - Getting Started in Whitewater Kayaking

Really fantastic lesson. Thank you so much for the incredible instruction. Ellen and Bart were wonderful instructors! I'm so excited to get out on the water with my own kayak and put my new skills to the test. Even, *gasp* rolling over! Best, Wren

Wow, Kelly sure can cram a lot of information into two hours.  He answered every question I had and more. Thanks for a very informative two hours!

Kayak 101 - Getting Started in Kayaking

My girls were Brownies. From a leader perspective, I wanted to see something fun, and that would build confidence. This was one of our first real "outings" as a Girl Scout. I was looking for something "different", something with a sense of adventure/out of the ordinary (something they don't do everyday) but controlled and safe. I also wanted something a bit challenging - physically, but also something they hadn't done before, something that would build confidence. This really fit the bill perfectly. They didn't' want to get out of the pool!

I learned the "basics" that I "thought" I knew - after kayaking for 10 years, I realized I should have taken this course years ago…in addition to the "basics" I was amazed at the techniques I learned regarding paddling, strokes, maneuvers, rescues, navigation and expedition planning!

Thanks for the info and the good class.  Even though I've owned recreational kayaks for many years, I learned far more than I ever knew before.

It is amazing to do something so challenging. I feel like I have accomplished something that I never thought possible.

Kayak 101 - Getting Started in Kayaking

Note - the times for this event:5:30 - 6:30: Socal & Dinner time!  Come enjoy pizza, salads and desserts (not included in the class) and get to know the others in class. 6:30 - 8:30: Class time!  Bring a pen and paper; You'll want to take good notes!

Kelly is someone who knows the sport of kayaking and is able to teach in a safe, effective and fun way.  Not only did the girls have a total blast, but they learned the names for all parts of their kayak and equipment, how to safely enter and exit a kayak, how to help someone else who may be in trouble, what to do in inclement weather and how to best move through the water (to name a few).  We had our last Girl Scout meeting of the year last week, and when I asked the girls what their favorite experience was over the last 3 years, 75% chose kayaking.  I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

The combination of classroom, followed by river work was perfect.   The schedule was flexible to deal with the reality of conducting a class outdoors.  The whole experience has been informative and has helped improve my paddleing significantly.  I am more likely to continue to boat on a regular basis as a result of my experience in NMKI courses.

HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone interested even in local overnight kayaking adventures! Totally loved it!!

I would wholeheartedly recommend this course. My girls had a blast and I thought the price was a bargain. My girls are young enough, so almost any activity is still "fresh" for them…they are up for about anything. The girls had a blast - they really enjoyed this.

"Open House" Kayak & SUP Fun, Games and Practice

I believe it is important for girls of this age to work together and have fun.  This course exceeded my expectations in both teamwork and fun!

It's not about kayaking...it's about overcoming fears, building courage and self confidence!

"Open House" Kayak & SUP Fun, Games and Practice

This was a fantastic weekend! We learned so much so quickly but at the same time could take it at our own individual pace. When I got into the kayak on the first morning I was still a little uncertain about trying out whitewater but by the end of the weekend I felt very comfortable. I was definitely glad I went.  Thank you Kelly and Dave!
