It was a truly unique experience. My sons and I enjoyed it very much. Cool breeze, great instructions, calm waters, spectacular views. Colorful kayaks, great people.
After completing Kayak Basics and Intermediate Kayaking there is still more to learn!
In Advanced Kayaking we will add a technique called edging and leaning to all of our strokes. By doing this we will improve your efficiency and control in all conditions. You will find that you can turn the longer, fast boats with ease.
On shore the class will examine what goes into a prepared kayakers gear choices, use of map and compass and emergency strategies.
Lastly we will practice "speed rescues" , towing and group leadership.

The kayak roll is not a advanced skill, it is a skill that can be added at any stage in a paddler's progression of learning. With our three step process on the surface you will build the muscle memory necessary to roll before you try underwater, eliminating a lot of the dunking. With a roll, you will find you will advance you're skills quickly because you won't worry about capsizing, it's also a great way to cool down in Texas. Discover Kayak has a 90% success rate in the first two hour session, 100% in the follow-up when necessary. You may return for follow ups as much as needed, no extra charge !
Maximum 2 students per session.
Taught on a one on one basis, call we will arrange a time for you!
We Guarantee you will roll! Cost: $150
