Personalized Kayak Courses

Whether you are a novice kayaker interested in improving your combat roll, or an advanced kayaker looking to master the latest freestyle move, private instruction is the best way for our talented instructors to help you achieve your goals.

A Day of Private Instruction

All of our private instruction begins at our riverside headquarters. Here, our instructors take time to help students determine a set of goals for the day’s instruction. From there, you will take it to the water. Our instructors select the most appropriate stretches of river for your day, sometimes splitting morning and afternoon sessions between different locations depending on the student’s needs. Once on the river, the itinerary of skills and strokes is entirely up to the student and instructor.

Professional Instructors

Our instructors have the experience to cover everything from explaining the theory behind the most basic strokes to breaking down the techniques behind the latest play moves. We hire instructors who can pinpoint problems as well as implement solutions in a variety of ways. If you are having trouble, we can help.

The individual attention available in our private instruction is the perfect way to improve your technique or master new moves.

Best of all, the day is all about your progression and development as a whitewater kayaker.

Group photo of rafters in gear standing beside a river.

I’ve been rafting and IKing for nearly three decades privately. I’ve been learning to hardshell kayak and decided to take a private pool session here to work on my roll. This was my first time using a commercial outfit for any river activity and I was very impressed with their organization and set up. I’d also heard many positive stories from my rafting friends and acquaintances. Paul was great to work with in the pool and worked at a pace I need to feel comfortable executing a roll. While I still left with things to work on (as expected), I much better about self improvement and getting back on the river. Highly recommend.”
