Speaking Good Boat

by: John Winters How long is a long kayak? How wide is a wide kayak? How fast is a fast one? Who cares?

Kayak Edging - Teach it at the start

Photograph from: I had an epiphany this past summer. I was teaching at a Greenland Symposium in Wawa, Ontario, Canada and I was paired up for the weekend with Bonnie Perry from Chicago, IL. She is a level 4 paddler and holders her level 3 BCU coach.

Long Distance Instruction

We recently got an email from Vedharajan; a new paddler living in India. He is training for a large expedition to raise awareness about coastal conservation in that area. We posted info about the campaign a couple weeks ago in our news section.

New Directions In Teaching

Navigation class The past ten years have seen a very significant growth in the popularity of kayaking in North America. Kayakers are now seeking more and better training opportunities. Instructors are meeting these demands with more sophisticated programs and teaching resources, providing both new and experienced paddlers opportunities to develop skills in safe and challenging learning environments.
Brrr... Off season paddling, for me, it is the best time of the year. I teach all summer so I don’t get much time to get out and do some paddling for myself so I look forward to the off season when teaching slows down and my own recreational paddling goes way up. That is good because for me, the fall is the best time of the year to paddle as the storms roll in bringing with them wind and waves. The offside to it is that fall brings cooler air thus cooler water.
