Whitewater School -_________________
The RICKA Whitewater Group will be holding a Class II Whitewater Kayak School The course will be taught by ACA certified whitewater instructor Mike Rock and will be free for qualified RICKA members.
In this course, participants will learn and refine the techniques needed to paddle in class II whitewater. After a review of the basic strokes on flatwater, we will head to the river to work on eddy turns, peel-outs and ferries. We will also cover river reading and basic river safety.
To participate in this course you must be a current RICKA member. While this is a beginner whitewater course, it is not for novice paddlers. You must be able to handle self rescues (wet exits) and already know the basic strokes. Previous moving water experience is a plus. Class size is limited.
Participants must provide their own equipment including a whitewater kayak, sprayskirt and helmet. Recreational kayaks are not allowed in this class. Click on the link Whitewater School to register.
