Kayak paddling clinic with ACA certified instructors

August 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Arkansas Canoe Club
All Sports Productions Ad
Are you new to kayaking or want to try it? Maybe you’ve never had any actual instruction? This is a great, controlled environment (vs moving water) to get comfortable in a kayak and learn basic paddling strokes.
Bring your kayak or borrow one from a friend (no gear will be provided) and spend Tuesday evening, August, 15 at Lake Nixon from 6:00-8:00 PM with some of our club’s ACA-certified instructors (Liz, Joel, and Elene) to learn how to paddle your kayak efficiently. We’ll cover “go” strokes, “side” strokes, “turn” strokes, and the ever-popular “keep you upright” strokes. We’ll also do some flatwater exercises that apply directly to moving water.
Whitewater (creek, play, or down river) or recreational kayaks (sit in or sit on) only please.
Make sure to also bring a life jacket and water bottle.
This is free to ARKANSAS CANOE CLUB members and those in their households. If you’re not a current member, we welcome you, it’s only $25/year/household to join and has a lot of benefits.
Come out, learn some skills, and make new paddling friends.
You can go online and join at www.arkansascanoeclub.com and make sure you sign the online waiver if you haven’t yet this year:
