Welcome to your first downriver trip. This trip is designed for advanced beginners learning to kayak in Washington DC. We will explore multiple rapids of the Potomac. 

Pausing  on the side of the river, we will continue to work on our rolls and add bracing strokes into our quiver, we will build confidence in paddling through bigger whitewater.

In all beginner-level classes boats are provided. Kayaks are hardshell with an enclosed cockpit like Liquid Logic Remixes or Jackson Antixes. Any student signed up for 3 or moreclasses with us is welcome to join Tuesday night Open Practice sessions all season long.
