....Join the region's most experienced staff and learn how to paddle whitewater "the correct way" with Chesterfield County's professional instructors! This is the same as the 2-day Beginner W/W Kayak class, but only for those who can handle a more aggressive learning curve. Friday evening is spent briefly on flat-water getting fitted and learning wet-exits. Saturday is right into the whitewater river trip to introduce river reading and running, and to refine skills. Please recognize Saturday will be a longer day on the water than usual. Swimming ability is required. All equipment is provided. Max weight of 235 lbs. due to kayak limitations.
