Beginning Clinic on the Chattooga River

Chattooga River CanoeingWe run our beginning Canoe and Kayak instruction on Section II of the Chattooga River, located outside of Clayton, GA. This clinic on the white water in GA is designed to give a first time paddler the confidence and comfort of being in a boat. We work on basic paddle strokes such as forward strokes, sweep strokes and others that allow you to turn. We’ll teach you about reading water and catching eddies, peeling out and ferries.

In the Kayak clinic we’ll teach you how to wet exit your boat, and, based on your comfort, you may learn an Eskimo Roll. After you have some initial kayaking experience we suggest you come back just for a roll clinic.

After lunch you’ll take on some solid class II and III white water in Georgia. We know you’ll love it, and come back for some of our more advanced clinics.

Intermediate Canoe, Kayak Clinics on the Chattooga River

Intermediate clinics on the Chattooga are designed to increase your confidence on the White Water of Georgia.  They begin on Sect III with Class III whitewater in Georgia. If you feel comfortable, you can even run Bull Sluice, a double drop class IV rapid. In this intermediate clinic, we want you to perfect your techniques, and in the kayaking clinic master your roll.
