FLAT TO FLOW
This course will lead participants from lake shores to river edges and give them the skills to get into the flow. Starting a lake participants will practice and gain the foundation set of skills needed to safely advance into moving water. A full day will be spent in the current learning and practicing flow basics, and then applying them to a down river float. The course focuses on personal safety and managing hazards on the river.
The aim of the clinic is to take participants with established flat-water skills and get them paddling comfortably in the moving water. By developing knowledge of basic river features and paddling techniques participants will learn to navigate in the dynamic river environment.
After completing this course participants can expect to feel comfortable taking a personal (unguided) SUP trip on class 1 rivers. They will also develop an understanding of the potential hazards the river poses along with a variety of new skills that can be applied to the moving water environment.
