INSTRUCTOR: Chris Celentano
This class is designed for intermediate and seasoned paddlers wishing to refine their skills for open water kayaking in lakes and oceans. This class is intended for paddlers who wish to spread their wings and learn to paddle safely year round in larger and tougher bodies of water.
This course is not for beginners, recreational or inflatable kayaks.
This class is ideal for anyone who took the 2-day intensive clinic earlier this summer or in the past. We will be taking our skills onto Lake Pend Oreille to work on open water safety and rescue, touring, and rough water boat handling; up to and including surfing if the conditions allow. Students should be prepared to paddle about 10 miles and GET WET. Be sure to read Clinic Requirements below.
