Volume 3 - Directional Control: Quit fighting the effects of wind, current and waves and learn how to make your boat go exactly where you want, when you want. World-renowned author and instructor Nigel Foster gives you multiple layers of techniques, blends one with another and highlights why certain techniques work better than others depending on the conditions. "Directional Control" will teach you the secrets of paddling in a straight line or turning with ease regardless of wind direction. Regardless of your skill level, this is a must have DVD which is loaded with essential information that will help you become an efficient and safe paddler.

Volume 4 - Rescues: Aside from the obvious benefits, confidence based on sound principles and practice aids your ability to rescue yourself and others.  Mastering rescues will improve your safety margin and extend your ability to enjoy the sport.  "Rescues" by world-renowned author and instructor Nigel Foster offers both mental and technical solutions.  Learn how to empty a kayak at sea, how to re-enter your own kayak from the water and how to take charge of a rescue until the swimmer is safely back in their boat.  A range of different techniques is covered with expert guidance as to how to decide which method is best for each situation.

This is without a doubt the best outdoor class I have ever taken. Kelly and his team are totally skilled as teachers. I plan to sign up for every class I can with this team. My enjoyment and skill level immediately improved after one day. I didn't realize I was using body memory from paddling a canoe many years ago that were not good practice with a kayak. Take these classes! They're a great return on investment and a whole lot of fun besides!--Kate O'Neill, 54yo teacher

I have taken the Intro, Roll, and the Whitewater Weekend courses. They've all been informative, supportive, and fun. It has been a progressive learning process and I do like your emphaisis on offensive paddling rather than defensive paddling.  The Intro to Kayak (Level 1) class is a perfect foundation.  I am probably going to retake the Intro class because there was a lot in there that I just could not absorb at one time; WAY beyond an 'intro' class!
