Start Time: 
Thursday, June 3, 2010 - 5:30pm - 8:30pm

On June 3rd, Kelly Gossett of New Mexico Kayak Instruction (founder of the Santa Fe Kayak meetup) will teach a 3hr Intro to Kayak lesson for Santa Fe Singles at the Chavez Center's indoor pool. We'll learn the basic strokes that will allow us to safely paddle lakes and easy rivers later on as a group. Kelly will also show us simple 2-person rescues and other team-building skills that are great with a partner, so bring a date, or find one at the event.

An afternoon kayaking is the perfect first date for any adventurous soul.  You can easily pack lunch and a bottle of wine or champagne into your kayak, and paddle across the lake to a remote campsite or secluded beach and enjoy a picnic that you couldn't have reached by road or trail.  A gentle paddle through the Rio Grande Bosque with lunch or dinner at the riverside Coronado Grill is a unique experience neither of you will soon forget. Or, plan an overnight trip to the seemingly remote areas of Abiquiu, Santa Cruz or Navajo Lake with the confidence and security that you'll both have a wonderful time without mishaps, and look forward to the next kayaking adventure together.

I want you to know how much I benefitted from your white water and roll classes.  Kelly your presentations Saturday and Sunday were always clear and packed with vital information.  The way you sketch out the hazzards and river features makes them surprisingly easy to remember on the river.  On the river you worked hard with each of us and I thought we class members got far more feedback and individual attention than in other kayak classes I have taken.  Glenn and Michael also seemed genuinely interested in our progress and were always willing to answer my questions and provide good feedback.  All in all the class was both challenging and a lot of fun and I feel it greatly accelerated my development as a white water kayaker.

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.
