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 a simple but 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.
