by Olympic Outdoor Center

Just getting started? Want to improve your paddle strokes? Practice capsize recovery? Almost any paddling topic can be covered in a private lesson from Olympic Outdoor Center.

Interested in receiving a Private Lesson? Please email us at or call 360.297.4659 to schedule a date, time, location and let us know what your goals are for your lesson.

Potential Topics:

  • Stroke Technique

It is always a good idea to use your own equipment for your lesson. If you bring your own kayak it needs to be fully compartmentalized, water tight bulkheads forward and aft. Don't worry if you don't have a kayak, we can match you with one that will be appropriate for both your stature and skill level.

Paddlers are also encouraged to bring their own immersion gear (dry suit or wet suit), especially if we are going to practice capsize recovery. If you don't have the appropriate Immersion gear you can rent that gear from us!
