Roughwater Skills Weekend Workshop

Quick Details

Roughwater Skills Weekend Workshops

Learn the Skills Needed to Paddle With Confidence in Roughwater Conditions

We’ll seek out dynamic waters at a couple different locations during this two-day workshop.

Roughwater Weekend will put you between a rock and a hard place, literally! Over this two-day session students will gain experience with rock gardening, surf landing/launching, reading roughwater environments, risk assessment, and roughwater rescue techniques. We will paddle in Casco Bay and in the waters surrounding Richmond Island, seeking out opportunities to gain comfort in roughwater and give each student a chance to grow as a paddler. Expect to get wet! We will wear helmets at all times when paddling in roughwater, and they will be provided for those who don’t own one.

We will be on the water from 9am-4pm each day of the workshop.
