Everyone is welcome to join, free of charge. All you need to do is register and we will send you off your information package with all the call in details. Sessions will be limited to 8 to ensure opportunity for discussion and questions.

Online Seminar : EASING INTO ROUGH WATER

This session is geared towards the paddler that has had some formal instruction or has been paddling for many years. For folks with formal instruction you would likely have a Paddle Canada Level-1 Skills certificate or similar experience and looking to improve your skill set. This session is not only focused on those paddlers that are considering going out looking to play in rough water, but also for paddlers looking to explore and paddle in new areas where exposure to wind, tides and waves is more likely. Join us to learn about strategies for safely exposing yourself to rough water paddling, appropriate learning opportunities and the type of gear and equipment you should be considering.
