Packraft Whitewater Skills Clinic | South Fork American River

Quick Details

Person 2 days
Person 3 days

Improve Your Packrafting Skills and Technique in this 2 to 3-day Clinic!

For the on-water instruction, we’ll work on whitewater packraft paddling techniques — catching eddies, making ferries with finesse, the brace, surfing and making moves with precision. We’ll even surf it up if the conditions are right. There is also a focus on basic safety and rescue, understanding hydrodynamics (AKA reading the water) and decision making.

Afterwards we’ll get some chill time at camp and maybe an afternoon swim or some volleyball. In the morning, we’ll pack up camp and hit the water for more instruction! The goal is to make you a self-sufficient paddler ready to explore the river with friends at the same level.

The cost of this packrafting clinic includes professional instruction, personal flotation device (PFD), paddle, helmet, wetsuit and paddle jacket. Whitewater packraft rentals available upon request.
