If you prefer personalized, custom instruction we suggest booking a private kayak lesson. Private instruction allows you to focus on and reach your goals without the distraction of large group needs and logistics. Focus on exactly the skills and goals you want to work on. If you feel like you’ve reached a plateau with your technical skills or your confidence on the river, private instruction will help you break through quickly and effectively to bring your paddling to the next level. Private instruction is ideal for intermediate paddlers.
We offer general skills development as well as specialty instruction in creeking, playboating, video analysis/coaching and rolling.
Private instruction doesn’t have to be a one-to-one ratio. We offer private instruction for groups of up to four people.
Private instruction is appropriate for all skill levels and is based in Western North Carolina.
