Guided Kayaking Training in Richmond, VA
Swimming pools are a great comfortable environment to work on your strokes, rolls, and comfort in a whitewater kayak.
King of the James is right around the corner and river levels are prime for even novice paddlers to learn the river and participate in the race! Put in the time over the next month with our training program and learn to enjoy the rapids of the James River!
If you are not interested in racing, come out and try a whitewater kayak before work! Whitewater kayaking has a great crossover with sports like mountain biking and skiing. Let us provide you with the gear and knowledge to figure out if this sport is a good fit for you!
Remember when the trails are too wet for biking and running, paddlers are enjoying perfect conditions on the river right here in RVA!
We will provide personalised instruction with boat control, dialing race lines and working on paddling efficiency needed for your best effort. We will practice transitions and discuss how to prepare for race day.
