Flat water kayak paddling technique

If you are training for that big race or you just want to improve your cruising speed for those long recreational paddles, we can help you. Come and learn how to paddle your kayak efficiently and fast, whether it is a touring kayak or a thoroughbred racing kayak. We will help you with outfitting your kayak and learning the ideal paddling style for you. We can help you to understand the tiny details of the kayak forward paddling stroke. If you have not tried them before, why not try paddling with wing paddles?  They will really make you feel like you are flying! We can provide the wings, you just have to provide the kayak.

Whitewater Kayak
