We offer the following classes:
Intro to Kayaking for Beginners - This class will teach you all of the basics from entering and exiting your kayak. Basic maneuvering stokes. Wet Exit. Individual re-entry and assisted re-entry. We will also have a brief discussion on how to pick the right kayak for you and basic equipment.
Stroke Refinement - This is a class for anyone wanting to refine their paddling strokes. Knowing how to apply your blade makes a difference in the energy you use while paddling, you will go further and faster with minimum effort. These skills will also protect your shoulders, wrists and elbows!
Rescue Class - In this class you will learn basic wet exit, individual re-entry and assisted re-entry. There are a lot of ways to get back into your kayak depending on what circumstances you find yourself in. We will cover several of these. When you leave this class you will feel more confident on the water because you will have the skill to get yourself back into your kayak or to assist someone else.
Advanced Rescues: This class will focus on perfecting your current rescue skills as well as teaching several new rescue techniques such as re-enter and roll, Hand of God, Bow Rescue, and towing.
Mathews Kid's Kayak Camp

This Kid's Kayak Camp is for ages 10 - 15. There are 6 spots available in each session. Campers will become familiar with all the parts of the kayak. They will learn how to enter and exit the kayak properly; how to maneuver with skill and how to self rescue and group rescue. All of this will be taught in a fun, safe environment through kid friendly games. As the week progresses and skill level increases we will venture into the different protected waters of Mathews to paddle and explore the Eco Systems of the surrounding area and hopefully find some dolphin to paddle with. On Friday we will have a Parent's day in order to show off the new skills that have been learned throughout the week.
