Kauai Winter Clinic
Monday, Feb 19 – Friday, Feb 23 2018
$700 usd (*Supply your own canoe)
$825 usd (*We supply canoe)
*Paddlers must supply their own leash, paddles and PFDs
There tends to be great deals on flights and accommodations this time of year and we can’t think of a better place to escape winter and keep you paddling going or kick start it for the 2018 season. The water is still warm, and the whales and dolphins tend to come out to play more this time of year.
This is an all-encompassing clinic. We will teach you the safety tricks you need to be aware of, on shore canoe handling, and beach launchings/landings. We will do an assessment of your paddling ability and then coach you on your skill gaps. We will analyze your technique, work on your stability and balance, and teach you the finer points of wave riding to make you a proficient confident paddler, especially in Hawaiian waters.
Multiple instructors will be on hand to address your questions and meet your personal needs. We will start in flat water on the river then move into the bay building on what you have learnt. When ready, we will venture out to the open ocean for some incredibly scenic and fun one way runs. If consensus is there, we can also do OC6 and teach steering in this clinic.
Ask about a group rate if you have 6 or more paddlers!
5x Day Clinic (canoe rental included) – $825
5x Day Clinic (supply your own canoe) – $700
*NOTE: We reserve the right to modify clinics if we don’t have a minimum of 6 paddlers attending for a five day clinic, and 4 paddlers for a weekend session. In the very unlikely event we have to cancel, we will refund the cost of the clinic. If you need to cancel, we will refund the full amount minus the PayPal admin fee (approx. $60USD) up to 2 weeks prior to the scheduled start date of a clinic, unless it affects the minimum participation requirement in which case the refund will be 50% minus the PayPal admin fee. If you cancel within two weeks of a clinic start date then the refund will be a 70% minus the PayPal admin fee since most of the fixed costs for the clinic will have been paid for and cannot be reimbursed. During the clinic, paddlers are responsible for any damages to the boats they are using. If there are damages, then the instructor will determine if the boat needs to be completely replaced or it can be fixed.
