Age: 16 and Older
Prerequisites: Ability to demonstrate basic strokes, wet exit with a skirt, and assisted rescue

Learn the finer points of boat control, the key to effective and efficient kayaking. Boat Control will focus on how the boat, body, and paddle work together. Start with rotation and edging, and how both increase boat control. Next move into edge turns and how torso rotation works with key strokes to turn the kayak more effectively and efficiently while on edge. Then work on techniques to develop a solid hip snap - the key to bracing and rolling. Finally, practice components of an effective low brace.

To get the most out of the course, we strongly recommend that you follow this class with Combining Strokes.
