Private Lessons and Coaching Program


We will discuss the skills you are looking to work on before the class, and your instructor will design a personalized program for you.

Itinerary: Based on the skills you want to cover

Our instructors the very best at creating a class specific to your needs. We will have a conversation with you and based on that we will determine the location to hold the class and the skills we will cover. We find that often 2 hours is an appropriate amount of time for a more experienced paddler. For a beginner, 3 hours will allow for more time to teach the skills, create a drill to help develop the skills, and provide time to create muscle memory. We provide private lessons ranging from learning to roll, practicing your boof, to strokes and concepts.

Advanced Coaching New this year!

Work with one of our advanced coaches (Bobby Miller and Steve-O) to get the experience you need to reach those far away rivers or class V drops. We can set up a training plan that includes in-town coaching, specific skills, and/or creeking trips. Video analysis and out-of-session training recommendations round out this program. Up to 4 participants– a few friends make this option more cost effective.
