River SUP Beyond the Intro is an extension of the Introduction to River SUP program to help participants gain confidence on moving water.
The aim of this course is to reinforce and practice skills learned in Introduction to River SUP to help paddlers gain confidence on moving water. The session will be done on a section of river that is within the group's comfort level in order to maximize learning opportunities and help participants dial in new and existing maneuvers.
After completing this course participants can expect to have had lots of practice performing eddy turns and ferries, and trying out some more advanced maneuvers such as surfing small river waves. Paddlers will also be able to identify river hazards on the fly and have good decision making skills on class I/II- moving water. Instructors will give personal feedback to all participants to paint a clear picture of the best next steps to further paddling proficiency.
