Na Pali Challenge OC6 Prep Clinic
Saturday, August 4 – Thursday, August 9
*Paddlers must supply their own leash, paddles and PFDs
If you’ve ever wanted to not only see the Na Pali Coast, but paddle it in OC6, then this is the clinic as it is normally the only time of year you can safely paddle it. This will be an OC6 clinic suitable for all levels of paddler. The clinic is scheduled so that you can optionally race the Na Pali Challenge (not included in the clinic cost) which is a change race consisting of a team of 6 men and 6 women alternating shifts.
You will get the proven Tahitian style stroke technique along with OC6 practicing in warm blue Kauai waters to include roles in different seats, OC6 wave catching, water changes, steering tips, training tips, and more. For those racing the Napali Challenge, we will cover race preparation, selecting the optimal line, locations to stay clear of, and more so that there are no surprises come race day. We may throw in some solo practice as well.
Ask about a group rate if you have 6 or more paddlers!
5x OC6 Day Clinic (canoe rental included) – $750
*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.
