Often I am asked “why take a kayak class” when retailers, people, and electronic media proclaim that it is easy to kayak. It is easy to kayak when a person uses efficient technique. My goal is to share the love and knowledge of kayaking and the outdoors with others. And one of the best ways to achieve that goal is to help others learn how to kayak safely and without pain.

I focus on you. Information can be lost in large groups and often there are questions left unanswered. Having a personal understanding of our local waters and some of the most unique waterways enables me to customize a class to a student’s needs. I can use the knowledge, training, and certifications I earned from the American Canoe Association (ACA), the British Canoe Union (BCU), and the school of hard knocks to enhance a fun learning environment for the new and experienced student. Paddling is a dream, passion, and means of relaxation for all.
