Do you need more adrenaline? If you have mastered Class II and are ready for the next challenge, an intermediate kayaking clinic is the next step. Our Class III kayaking clinic works on refining eddy turns, peel outs, and ferries in order to succeed on more powerful water and to catch smaller eddies found on Class III rapids. In addition, you will learn to surf waves in order to cross fast currents and work on eddy hopping to scout what’s up ahead. We spend about a third of this clinic on flatwater, a third on class II whitewater and a third on class III whitewater. Participants must be able to perform eddy turns, peel outs and ferries in a kayak on class II whitewater, roll (>50% of the time) on Class II whitewater and perform self-rescues.
1-Day Intermediate (Class III) Clinic:
Learn the skills that will take your kayaking to an intermediate level in our one-day Class III clinic. Find out how to break class III whitewater down into smaller, less intimidating sections and practice planning and executing moves more consistently as you paddle on Costa Rican whitewater. This clinic focuses on improving your precision kayaking and is appropriate for advanced beginners (class II) and intermediate kayakers.
2-day Class III Clinic:
Our two-day class III kayak clinic also covers: Catching micro-eddies, rolling on Class II and III rapids, using waves to cross powerful currents, weighting and unweighting the bow and stern.
