Roughwater Skills Weekend Workshop
- Roughwater Skills Weekend Workshops
Learn roughwater skills during our weekend workshop in Maine!
Roughtwater Weekend will put you between a rock and a hard place, literally! Over this two day session students will have opportunities to gain experience with rock gardening, surfing, 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 experience with surfing and rock gardening. 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. All participants are invited to an optional dinner on the first evening of the course.
