KKA Afternoon Session 07/23-27/12

July 27, 2012

This last week was the final week of KKA for 2012. What a great way to finish it off too! Great times all around. This group worked on getting used to their boats, edges, and paddles. They learned their strokes, eddie turns, how to surf, and how to run through waves. I wish I’d come as far as them in my first week! Good job everybody!

Here’s some photos:

Another successful week for KKA. The six kids in the morning session all got their rolls down solid in the eddy and even a few rolls in the current. They got plenty of surfing in while they learned how to get on the wave, switch their edges, and practice T-Rescues.

Here are a few pictures of what we did last week:

Ten KKA students had their first kayaking experience here at Kelly’s Whitewater Park. They all learned eddie turns, edging, and how to surf. Most of them even got their rolls down in the eddie. I wish I’d gotten as far in my first week of kayaking as they did! It was amazing to see them catch on to the lessons so fast. Way to go guys!

Here are some pictures of the group:

July 25-29 KKS- Whitewater Swimming Fun & Surfing

Week 3 at KKS brought great all around kids!  One great step to creating great paddlers is teaching them how to swim in the river.   These students have the whitwater swim position down, can swim with their paddle, and don’t mind jumping in!  Enjoy the photos!
