All Gender Whitewater Kayaking I/II & II/III Clinic | South Fork American River, California

Quick Details

Take your kayaking to the next level on the South Fork American!

Take your kayaking to the next level! For the on-water instruction, the class is divided into groups – Whitewater I/II and Whitewater II/III so you can learn with other students at your level.

Whitewater I/II – We’ll focus on catching eddies, making ferries with finesse, the brace, roll and making good decisions on the river. The goal is to make you a self-sufficient paddler ready to explore the river with friends at the same level.

Whitewater II/III – This group levels up the skills by learning to make Class 3 moves in Class 2. We’ll explore surfing, catching more challenging eddies and the all important – combat roll.

If you are unsure of which clinic you should sign up for, please read through our Paddling Skill Level Self-Assessment.

The cost of the clinic includes instruction and all the gear you’ll need – kayak, paddle, personal flotation device (PFD), sprayskirt helmet, wetsuit and paddle jacket. This gear will be there ready for you when you check in to this clinic. Camping at our site on the river available.
