Basic Strokes is a great starting place with a very high ceiling. We cover proper use and implementation of all the strokes used for proper, safe, and injury free canoe and kayak paddling. A strong emphasis is placed on good biomechanics to enhance efficiency and effectiveness while preventing both long and short term injury. Through this we aid balance and establish the student's ability to control boat direction, position, and stability. Basic Strokes is the first class in a three part series and is a prerequisite to both Edging and Bracing and our Moving Water class.
