I think I'd be down for both. I could use a refresher on the finer technique of rolling, but I'd also be love to have some tips for when I'm on the wave... Would both be $40, or does the cost of $20 cover both?

Grace and Peace,
Jordan

Hi CdB,

Our instructor, Zach, can teach everything from:

Very beginner - rolling and bracing to

Beginner - anyone who wants to learn to surf or learn basic moves like spins, bow-stalls (I didn't think a bow-stall was basic but anyway..) and that sort of stuff to

Advanced - anyone who can establish a solid surf (that's me), spin (yup), bow-stall (not quite yet) and wants to learn stuff like blunts (sure), loops cartwheels (why not) and airscrews (in my dreams - on Garb!).

So, I'm excited!

There will be only two sessions so how we slice it will depend on the feedback that I get from you.

Let me know what you think. Is this too advanced, or is it just right?  The club is subsidizing it and putting it on for you; so, your input counts, a lot!

ALSO
Zach will camp Friday and Saturday night and is looking to carpool with someone.. let me know

Cheers,

Adam

I am interested as well, in both. I'm not sure where I stand but I can definitely learn from both!
Cheers

I'm interested as well. I'm not sure whether the beginner or intermediate would be most appropriate for me, but I'd be interested in doing at least one of them. What topics/skills is each expected to cover?

Thanks!
Jordan

Palmer Rapids weekend 2014 - Paddling Clinics
« Reply #1 on: May 21, 2014, 09:57:00 PM »
As part of our annual Palmer Rapids' weekend, we will be running white water kayak clinics on Saturday  for  both beginner paddlers (in the morning) and intermediate paddlers (in the afternoon).  The cost will be $20 per person (the club is subsidizing the cost).

The beginner clinic is planned to run from 10:00am to noon and the intermediate clinic is planned from 1:30pm to 3:30pm

EDIT:

"To give the non camping paddlers a chance to arrive in the morning

the beginner clinic will run from 11:00 to 13:30 and
the intermediate/advanced clinic will run from 14:30 to 17:00

The features (and water level) at Palmer Rapids will somewhat dictate what 'tricks' can be taught and practiced but we have Zach for the day and he is eager and qualified to help us; so, I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity.

Adam"


We are trying to gauge the level of interest in these sessions.  Please let us know by responding to this post and letting us know what level would interest you.

Our instructor is Zach Zwanenburg, a great young paddler from Cornwall. You may have seen him competing at the Level Six Cup at Bate Island a couple of weeks ago.  Many of you probably know his father, Robert Zwanenburg, who runs CREW, Cornwall REcreational Whitewater.
