Inflatable kayaks are a great way to learn how to paddle. Sturdy and forgiving, this craft allows beginners to feel comfortable on the river and advance quickly with their paddling skills. This introductory class will provide students with training in river safety, paddling strokes, reading whitewater, river rescue, and how to care for inflatable kayaking equipment. Class starts with dry land training and then flat water practice to prepare students for paddling the Weber River - a class I to II stretch that is a perfect challenge for new paddlers. Small rapids and rock gardens will provide us with plenty of opportunity to practice our paddling skills. Please join us for a fun day of paddling on the Weber River, just 45 minutes from SLC. Students are responsible for their boat and gear rental, please reserve early. Inflatable kayaks and all related gear can be rented as a package from REI and others. Class is limited to 12.
