If you are new to kayaking or have never had a formal kayak safety training, we would suggest you taking the Intro to Kayaking Class first, then build your skills learning self and assisted-rescues once you are more comfortable with your kayaking skills. If you still need help working on a specific area try our Mini-Clinic, designed to target areas in one-on-one instruction.
