"Since my initial introduction to paddling in 1988, it has remained a favorite past time. Rafting is awesome, especially for multi-day trips. I SUP race, tour and run whitewater. I fish from a kayak, run rapids and love to play in the ocean. I even did my first ever canoe race this year! Best of all I get to enjoy paddling with my best friend, my wife Celeste, and our awesome dog Teddy."

Danny Mongno comes to us from our friends at NRS and is celebrating his 16th Canoecopia in 2019. When not on the water, find Danny out for a run, strapped into a snowboard, at the Nordic center, or at a favorite hangout of paddlers... the bar stool.



Presentations

 All About Paddle Clothing

Sylvania - main floor Fri 7:30pm-8:15pm 

Loon - upstairs Sat 12:30pm-1:15pm 

Cold feet...cold hands...just plain cold? Sweaty...sun burnt? Neoprene vs. dry suit? Is it really a ladies' fit or is it just purple? This splash jacket looks a lot like my rain jacket? In this open discussion, Danny will address everything above and then some, and answer all your questions, even the weird ones. In the end he hopes you'll walk away with a better understanding of what to wear paddling for each season.



 Paddling Skills for the Kayak Angler

Pool - Clarion Hotel Sun 2:30pm-2:50pm 

To truly enjoy the sport of kayak fishing the angler must embrace the paddling side of it. With proper skills we can spend more time out on the water by using significantly less energy. We can also move more effectively and quietly, positioning our boats for the perfect cast. How do we avoid a flip and what to do when one occurs? Join paddlesport instructor, Danny Mongno, as he demonstrates how to perform at your best when fishing from your kayak.



 Selecting the Perfect Kayak Paddle

Atrium - upstairs Fri 4:30pm-5:15pm 

Atrium - upstairs Sat 10:30am-11:15am 

We all share common goals when kayaking: to use less energy, be more comfortable, and have more fun. The first step to get there is to make sure you have a properly-fitted paddle. In this interactive class Danny will help you discover the best paddle design for your paddling style and then custom fit the perfect paddle for not only you and your kayak, but for your budget as well.



 Stand-Up Paddling Top Ten Tips

Pool - Clarion Hotel Sat 2:00pm-2:20pm 

Pool - Clarion Hotel Sun 2:00pm-2:20pm 

Join veteran instructor, Danny Mongno, as he takes you through his Top Ten Tips to improve your stand-up paddling. During this on-water seminar, he'll cover safety, stroke efficiency and incorporating footwork for improved balance and board control. If you are already into SUP, or are planning on getting into this great sport, this is one seminar you should not miss.



 The Forward Stroke: Sit Down or Stand Up, Let's be Efficient

Atrium - upstairs Fri 5:30pm-6:15pm 

Atrium - upstairs Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 

We all want to use less energy, stay out longer, maybe go faster, and not be sore. So, it makes sense that the Forward Stroke gets so much attention, since it's the stroke we use the most. Join Danny as he breaks it down in an easy to follow, step-by-step process for kayakers, stand-up paddlers, and canoeists. This is an interactive class, so be ready to participate and have fun.
