Skills, Squirts and Little Falls with Anna and Nate



Live in the D.C. area and looking to build powerful kayak skills and confidence?

Maybe you’re looking for a unique after-work paddling experience that looks at the whole kayaker – mind, body and paddle.

Join Anna and Nate Nahikian (Potomac River Outfitters), for an evening of intermediate skills building that includes stern squirts, effective core engagement for powerful strokes, fundamentals of a confident mindset and a fun run down Little Falls.


  • There’s a good chance you’ll come away from this clinic a more powerful paddler who chooses and executes lines and stern squirts with confidence.
  • You’ll have a better understanding of what muscles we use most and what muscles we use least in kayaking and how to balance your body for pain relief and reduction of the risk of injury from paddling.
  • You’ll have a deeper understanding of the term ‘torso rotation.’ We’ll talk about muscle engagement below the sprayskirt!
  • Enhanced mood, fun and smiling from a great evening on the water with like-minded people!

I understand that you’re busy! That’s why we’ve condensed this class into 2.5 hours in an evening so you have time to fit it in after work.

Anna only comes to DC once per year and this is a unique opportunity to work and paddle with her!


6:00 p.m. Meet at Lock 5/6.

6 – 6:30 p.m. Stretching for paddling longevity with Anna.

6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Mindset coaching, on-water skills and run down Little Falls.
