I offer a variety of kayak classes for all skill levels including personalized coaching, private or small custom group coaching, and coach at several symposiums across the country. All posted classes are run in association with Cross Currents Sea Kayaking where I lead or assist in a variety of intermediate to advanced classes. These classes include among others, the Woman’s Sea Kayaking Weekend, Intensive Intermediate Skills Development, and On Water Navigation.
Cross Currents Sea Kayaking provides high quality sea kayaking instruction to intermediate and advanced paddlers. This includes development of new skills, exposing paddlers to new environments, and getting everyone to stretch their limits in a way that is both safe and fun. We specialize in long-term paddler development, working with dozens of repeat clients to refine existing skills and progressively expand both the range of skills and the environments in which they are used. Cross Currents received the 2015 national award from the ACA for program development for the Unconscious Competence series. This series runs over a three-month period (May to August) and involves approximately 15 days of progressive training sessions. After nailing down the basics on flat water we move toward more advanced skills and their application in rougher environments, including open ocean, surf and current. The goal is to move current ACA Level 2-type paddlers to the point of competence at the ACA L3 and BCU 3* level.
