The City of Pocatello has announced the class, Introduction to Inflatable Kayaking.
The post announcing the class states:
“Inflatable kayaking is much easier to learn than its hard shell cousins. The equipment is affordable, easy to transport and easy to store.
Take this 3-part class to better understand the benefits, limitations, uses and skills necessary for inflatable kayaking. Each class is half-instructional and half-practical application on the water. Instructions to each location will be given to participants via email.
- Part 1 a flat-water experience with equipment and paddle basics held at the wellness complex. Skills include assorted paddle strokes, getting in and out and equipment selection.
- Part 2 is moving water fundamentals on an easier stretch or water. Skills include eddy hopping, ferries and bracing. Location: TBA depending on flow.
- Part 3 is held on faster moving water and includes obstacle avoidance, running small rapids and evaluating rapids from the bank. Location: TBA depending on flow. You can skip a basic session for the advanced stuff with instructor approval.
