WHITEWATER 101

Whitewater 101 at eNRG kayaking is the perfect way to test the waters and jump into the sport of whitewater kayaking. This two day course is for total beginner paddlers who are looking to become familiar with basic skills, strokes, kayak selection/design, safety, and river hydrology.

Whitewater 101 classes will be based out of your Oregon City shop on the Willamette River. After outfitting students with gear, we will spend time going over basic skills and safety techniques on flat water. After lunch we will use our skills to run the lower clackamas (class I-II). The day will finish back at our shop with a debrief. Day 2 will consist of a longer run on a local stretch of river with a focus on further developing skills learned the previous day.
