EVENT FULL: Kayak Safety Basics

Pinicon Ridge Park, Linn County

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

EVENT FULL: please follow registration link to be added to waitlist. 

Have you purchased a new kayak?  Would you like some education to help you to become a better, more skilled paddler? The backwaters at Pinicon Ridge Park are a great place to practice and learn about open water kayaking, but in a controlled backwater setting, rather than out on a river channel, where current would need to be addressed. Participants should meet at Eagle View Shelter within Pinicon Ridge Park. Join ACA certified kayak instructors as we cover Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), equipment, river etiquette, where to paddle and safety. We will practice basic strokes, graceful entry and exit of a kayak and more. This session should be helpful to even experienced paddlers but is ideal for those just getting their feet wet. Participants should provide their own gear, boats, paddles, etc – although limited additional gear can be provided – please call 319-892-6485 to arrange for that option. Register online by June 14th. Cost: $10/person.
