Blue Hill Falls

This 2-day skill development adventure is focused on paddlers looking to improve and enhance their rough water boat handling skill while working in the in the tidal current and coastal environment. The Reversing Falls at Blue Hill, Maine and the tidal currents in the area have been selected as it provides the perfect learning venue for paddlers beginning to work on boat control in tidal currents all the way to the paddler with previous experience in currents looking to expand upon their skill-set and improve surfing on tidal waves.

Cloud 9 Adventures has partnered up with an incredible local coach from the area, Chris Audet. His passion for paddling and his extensive coaching background coupled with his knowledge of this paddling location will surely set up paddlers for a weekend full of skill development, fun and camaraderie.

Our time in tidal currents will provide opportunities for participants to work on breaking in and out of the current, boat angle and ferrying, rough water safety & rescues, rough water confidence all the way up to refined boat control focused on surfing a standing tidal wave.
