About the course:

For those that have the stamina and really want to invest some intensive time to jumpstart their kayaking, the week-long format of the Immersion Week is the answer!

The beginning of the week starts with an introduction of your core skills on our river home, the Green River. You can anticipate a strong emphasis on water comfort, common sense safety, and managing a group downstream. We pepper in hard skill modules in short blasts throughout the week which will include stroke mechanics that make your boat move the way you want, comfort building to establish a bomber roll in the long run, and with all that we will travel and enjoy some of Western NC’s greatest treasures. We truly enjoy getting off the beaten path and the week-long format allows us to do so; you’ll just begin to scratch the surface of all WNC has to offer paddlers of all skill levels, and you’ll leave with the tools and skills to keep exploring long after class has ended.

Have a group already? This class is also available by appointment; minimum of 3 students.
