Strategies for Wind & Current
May 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Wind can be one of the most difficult and frustrating aspects of kayaking. In this class, we’ll focus on several specific techniques that can be used to control your boat effectively in the wind, including edging, using your legs and employing the keyhole stroke. We’ll also show you how to use the wind to make your paddling (especially turns) more effective. And depending on conditions, we will also share strategies for dealing with currents, including ferry gliding and breaking in and out of eddies.
