Moving Water Immersion
Take the next step and paddle an individual kayak into the moving waters of the Lower Clackamas River. We provide inflatable kayaks, paddles, and lifejackets, or if you’re a graduate from our Hardshell Basics course, we encourage you to put your skills to the test in a hardshell kayak.
You may have to repeat this course multiple times to solidify your skills, or try a full day session. Perfect for those transitioning from flat water and recreational paddling to whitewater!
River running stroke techniques, river reading skills, peel-outs and eddy-turns, river running boat control skills, crossing the river, and using the current to your advantage.
