Overview

Rocks are your friends and in this one day boot camp, we will help you get acquainted with them and other river features in preparation for stepping up your creeking game. Using commonly found features on creeks like the Upper Yough, we will teach you how to boof (rocks/holes), use and understand holes to your advantage, navigate shallow water, read water and choose lines effectively. We will do some attaining, slot moves, and lots of boofs- working on the physical, but also the mental aspects of creeking with you. We will help you goal set, manage your mental game and play with the natural toys the river gives to us. This course is geared for those thoroughly comfortable on class 2 and some class 3 under your belt; also for those comfortable on 3/4 rivers but have trepidation about creeking. Course taught by Carin and Jordan, both ACA L4 River Kayak instructors.
