Paddle With Your Partner

Paddling whitewater is such an incredible experience that paddlers love sharing with everyone. So why not share it with your partner!


This program’s premise is to learn how to paddle with your partner, how to provide support, and the best methods of communication while in and around whitewater.


Featuring two full days of whitewater kayak instruction with Katie Kowalski and Casey Bryant Jones we will share what we’ve learned from traveling, paddling, and working together on whitewater.
