Volume 5 - Forward Paddling: Keep up with your paddling friends with the minimum of effort.  Learn good blade placement, efficient application of power and how to keep a straight course without wasting precious energy.  What causes blade flutter and why do kayaks weather-cock?  What part do your feet, legs and torso play in your forward stroke, and how can you modify your stroke to take advantage of a following sea?  Learn the answers and much more from someone who has fine-tuned the forward stroke through thousands of miles of expedition paddling. This episode also includes special bonus section on Greenland paddling with Greenland expert Greg Stamer.


Volume 6 - Rolling and Bracing: If you have a reliable roll and brace, your confidence level in a kayak will rise to new levels.  Nigel Foster looks at some non-intimidating ways to learn a roll, examines the essential components of different braces and a variety of practical everyday rolling techniques.

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.

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
