Rough water paddle clinic

California River Quest – Rough Water Clinic

WHO: This clinic is intended for Kayakers, Surfski and Stand Up Paddlers with recent open water experience who are participating in the California River Quest or anyone looking to further develop their skills in dynamic moving water, wind and waves.

WHAT: In this half day clinic at Yellow Bluff, we will get the opportunity to hone our skills in one of the best tide races in the Bay. Starting when the current is relatively modest, participants will get an opportunity to gradually work with faster current, and rougher, more dynamic water as the current builds. At Yellow Bluff, we can fine tune techniques used in fast current such as peel outs, ferry gliding, and catching eddies, as well as surfing waves that form in the race. We will also discuss safety and practice self rescues/getting back on the board and assisted rescues in the dynamic water. This is an excellent opportunity to push your limits with a strong safety net. Activities will be tailored to the interests of the participants! The central objective of the clinic is to best meet YOUR personal learning goals.

WHERE: We meet at and launch from the public boat ramp, opposite the Coast Guard Station in Horseshoe Cove (Fort Baker), Sommerville Rd, Sausalito.

COST: $99.00 (Minimum Enrollment: 2; Maximum Enrollment: 5)
