Join him for an enthusiastic give-and-take discussion as he shares his "must have" list with you so you can better enjoy your own adventures on the water.
Trying to choose a kayak can be overwhelming from the seemingly endless variety of boats available in the marketplace. Your goal is to find the boat that fits your needs and your budget. For a step by step approach to finding the kayak that works best for you, join Wayne for a dynamic and detailed discussion. He will draw upon his many years of teaching kayaking and fitting paddlers into kayaks so they can have an enjoyable experience.
Why not stay upright rather spending all that energy getting upright? Traditional bracing classes teach the slap brace, which is a one shot attempt at staying upright. This discussion focuses on bracing and stroke techniques that give you longer and more reliable support. Whether on a small lake or on open water, when the wind picks up and the water gets rough your need for support increases. Listen in if you want to feel more comfortable on the water and minimize your chances of capsizing on those rough days.
