SK2: Sea Kayak Capsize Recovery

This is the most important skill you can learn as a kayaker. Our class will teach you how to perform self and assisted rescues as well as better balance and control of your boat, building the knowledge and confidence you need to expand your horizons and grow within the sport. You will increase not only your own safety on the water, but also those around you and the added sense of security means you will have much more fun doing so!
