Level 4
 
Description:
The goal of this class is to begin to make you self sufficient on the water. You will learn the fundamentals of the "eskimo roll" (the technique of righting a capsized kayak), learn more advanced skills like crossing side currents, paddling through waves, basic surfing techniques and other river running skills.

For groups of adults only one Level 3 session is required. Kids under 10yrs old this is taken on a case by case scenario, depending on each kids development. Some 5-6yr olds are perfectly capable of learning these skills, others still need a year or two of physical and mental development. We will advise you based on their abilities coming out of the Level 3 class.
