Our class will take place in an under-explored lagoon section of the Los Angeles River. We'll meet riverside, talk about our goals for the class, then hop on the river for some basic drilling in strokes and navigation. We'll talk about safety and the role of kayaking in accessing nature. We'll finish off our session with a short portage (like real kayakers) and a paddle down some slowly moving water. All the while we'll be talking about the nature and the amazing urban history that also lives in our location, very near the confluence of two important rivers.

I have been guiding and teaching kayaking in Southern California since 2002 for UCLA and the Los Angeles Kayak Club. I am an American Canoe Association certified teacher for both whitewater and sea. I love working with beginners especially in natural settings like the Los Angeles River, where I have also been guiding trips since 2012. There is no better place to begin or improve your paddling but here. Come learn on this unique urban venue.
Boats will be delivered to class location. Students may need to assist with bringing their boat in the riverbed.
As mentioned previously, the session will take place on a tranquil (Class 1) section of the Los Angeles River located near Downtown Los Angeles. It's a place where nature and urban infrastructure merge in a unique way that will enhance our learning and make this a truly memorable experience. Safety will be our number one concern with the focus of our class getting comfortable in our boats and executing some basic maneuvers. All welcome.
