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.

Before i took Kelly's class, I was convinced that a sit-inside kayak was a FLOATING COFFIN (don't mean to be so morbid).  But now with what I learned in the Intro to Kayak class I feel CONFIDENT in a sit-inside kayak and my opinion has DRAMATICALY CHANGED.  Looking forward to more days on the water. Thanks Kelly.

Kelly is a great instructor. He starts with the basics and keeps building on from there. We started in a pool of calm water on the river, as we became comfortable with that we moved closer to the moving water, then into the main current working on peel outs, ferrying and edging, then down the Rio Grande. The second day starts by talking about the first day then on to paddle placement and timing in different aspects of the river. Back on the river we fine tuned our peel outs, ferrying, edging and worked on paddle placement as we go into and through the rapids. I could not belive my improvement from day one to day two! I highly recommed this class if you want to feel comfortable with negotiating class II and III rapids. You may not end up an expert but will have the tools to become one.

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.

Kelly is a great tactician with a keen ability to break the rivers' energy into a series of teaching moments that were both appropriate for our varying skill levels and allowed each of us to build confidence at every stage throughout the weekend.  My goal is to be able to manipulate the river, and all of its energy, with the grace and finesse that Kelly has!

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!
