Introduction to Tidal Currents

Saturday, October 17, 2020 (All day)

Learn how to safely maneuver and have fun in tidal currents in a supportive, participant-focused training environment. The first half of this training includes a review on flatwater of edging including turns and supportive strokes. The second half is entirely in tidal currents on the Argyle River where we'll gradually progress from slow moving current to moderate current. Activities promoting the development of fundamental skills (such as ferrying, s-turns, peeling in /out) will be employed throughout the training.

Experience includes:

- 1 day of coaching with Candlebox Kayaking's experienced, highly certified, expert coaches
- High quality equipment including kayaks by P&H, paddles by Werner and Aqua-Bound, drysuits by Kokatat, and all other necessary safety equipment
- Photos from your time on the water
- Participant focused video feedback to help participants with immediate progression and development

What people are saying:

“In the recent past I have had tidal current training with Matt DeLong. My experience with Matt (has) been excellent. Matt, thru a well thought out approach of each day, helped me take the next step and assisted me in comfortably engaging in new challenges. Having experienced Matt’s dedication to helping ever(y) paddler achieve more control and comfort in one’s own paddling skills I can do nothing other than “Very highly recommend” Matt’s coaching and the various moving water programs Candlebox Kayaking offers. Thank you Matt.”
