Presentations

 How to Choose a Kayak
(available virtually only) 
Trying to choose a kayak can be overwhelming with the seemingly endless variety of boats available in the marketplace. Your goal is to find the boat that fits your needs and your budget. If you want a step-by-step approach to finding the kayak that works best for you, then join Wayne for a dynamic and detailed discussion. He will draw upon his 32 years of teaching kayaking and fitting paddlers into kayaks so they can have an enjoyable experience.



 Practicing Good Judgment
(available virtually only) 
"It seemed like a good idea at the time" is one of Wayne's favorite sayings because he has used it more than he would like to admit. Said in another way, "Good judgment is learned through experience and experience is gained from bad judgment." You can re-invent the wheel, or come to this presentation and choose to learn some lessons from others who have made good and bad choices. Practicing good judgment is a skill that can be developed if you have the right tools.



 Using Your Boat, Body and Blade for Efficient Paddling
(available virtually only) 
Paddling a kayak is more than just taking strokes with your paddle. Kayaking is a true marriage of your boat, body, and blade. All three must be working together during all aspects of kayaking to get the most out of your equipment. In this presentation, Wayne will discuss body position and movements, boat positions and movements, and how to properly use and manipulate your paddle to get the results you want when kayaking.
