Slalom for River Runners
June 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Solid technique gained from slalom kayak practice provides a strong foundation for river running. We will show you how to effectively use your strokes to cross an eddy line with precision, gain extra glide with each stroke, and enter the eddy just where you want to be. By teaching you the basics of the Olympic sport, Whitewater Slalom Kayaking, using gates to plan your route, our instructors will improve your technique on the river. You will work on balance and edging as well as forward, draw, and sweep strokes.
