Intermediate whitewater kayak skills class on the Lehigh River
August 17 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Intermediate whitewater paddling skills class will be offered on the upper Lehigh gorge (Section I) on Saturday August 17. This is suitable for those who have run this section before and are comfortable on it, and/or have graduated from the LVKCC beginners series. Whitewater boats and gear are required. While I will focus the class on beginning intermediates, more advanced paddlers are welcome. We will meet up at the Whitehaven putin at 9am get our gear together and set shuttle. It will be a whole day class, with lots of opportunities to practice eddy turns, peel outs, ferries, river reading and some more advanced moves as well. A solid pool roll is highly recommended – we will work on turning that pool roll into a combat roll. The class is free, but current LVKCC membership and signing a waiver are required. Make sure to bring a lunch, snacks and at least 2 liters of water.
