Fast is fun and there is not much out there that is as fast and as fun as Surkski's. While at first we thought they were for advanced paddlers only we were wrong. This is a great boat for paddlers of almost all abilities and we are putting together a top notch clinic to get you on the water.

Surfskis are fun to paddle on calm water as well as the open ocean. They are very fast, very safe (sit-on-top and self-bailing), lightweight (about 30 lbs), and incredibly maneuverable with a foot-operated rudder. In this session, we provide stable models to teach essential skills such as body posture, use of the wing paddle, and remounting the surfski in open water.


We welcome Apic Kayaks Kenny Howell (pictured below to the shop to lead this clinic. We even have boats available to rent or you can bring your own. We will also have some of the high performance Epic Surfski's available for you to test ride after the clinic.


This clinic is perfect for first time Surfski paddlers as well as intermediates looking to improve their paddling.

A wetsuit is not a bad call but not necessary. Do dress in quick dry clothing based on synthetic fibers. No cotton.

When - 9:30 to 11 on March 3rd

Where - 101 Surf Sports San Rafael - 115 Third St, San Rafael, Ca 94901

This clinic is an incredible value for the money and we look forward to seeing you on the water. Buy an Epic Surfski within one week of the clinic and we will credit the full price of the clinic to your purchase.
