Advanced Strokes II

Years ago we played the sea in WW boats and seriously playful sea kayaks of the day. Today, boats are being designed for strictly sea play, but the skills of most sea kayakers don't have what it takes to handle them. In this class we take the final step in boat control specifically focusing on the skills needed to control today's sea play boats. This class takes off where Advanced Strokes I leaves off.A WW boat or your loose sea play boat is the tool for this class.      Call 206-321-0011 to register.

Prerequisites- Directional Control and Advanced Strokes I, 10 hours of focused practice. Your sea play or WW boat and paddle as well as your full play kit.

Course Descriptions

Learning how to paddle a sea kayak correctly and efficiently is a choice, like anything else. Engaging in a physical activity such as tennis, golf, martial arts, or kayaking can be done by simply picking up the tools of the sport and hacking your way along. To swing a racquet, a club, or paddle a Sea Kayak with some skill actually takes a great deal more than you might think. We have years of experience, training, and out of the box thinking to produce a higher standard of skills training. You can choose to get better much faster as my students have, get instruction elsewhere, or just hack along.
