Learn to creek boat from the author of the Creeking Bible!

(Registration Deadline—April 16, 2016)

Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (APEs) is pleased to announce another of its Paddle with the Pros clinics, this time by hosting an Intermediate Creeking Clinic with Leland Davis.  Leland has been teaching people to kayak for over 20 years.  In 2005, he became one of the first instructors to offer creeking-specific clinics, and he has since lead creeking clinics and adventure paddling trips across the US, in Mexico, and in Chile.  He’s the author of two whitewater guidebooks, ‘The River Gypsies’ Guide to North America’ and ‘North Carolina Rivers & Creeks,” and was the original founder of the Green River Race.

This one day course is designed for the intermediate level aspiring creek boater.  No previous creeking experience is necessary although strong intermediate kayaking skills (CL 3+) and a solid roll are required.  The course will take place on a river similar to Wilson’s Creek in difficulty and specific location will be determined as we get closer to the date.  The class will be limited to 10 students.  If you’ve thought about getting into creeking this is your chance!  Send in your registration form and payment to take advantage of this outstanding and rare opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Introduction and development of skills that will allow participants to increase their competency and comfort on class 3/4 creeks.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Students should be proficient in class 3+ whitewater and have a solid roll.  Participants should be in good health and overall fitness and possess solid swimming ability.  Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.
