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.
