Art of Pour-Overs

Sea Kayak Rock Garden Class on the Mendocino Coast

The Pour-over is one of the most popular and fun ocean rock gardening moves for both sea kayakers and whitewater kayakers. A pour-over is riding the swell or wave over a rock. The saying that "Timing is Everything" is so true for riding pour-overs and playing in other rock garden features. We can help . . .

Join us for this class refining your skills for running pour-overs and playing in ocean rock gardens. With our coaching, you will be running pour-overs with finesse and style. This is the perfect adventure for those who want to play in ocean rock gardens and work on skills like timing..

Prerequisite skills include ability to swim 25 yards with your equipment, fitness and paddling skills to paddle 6 miles, maneuvering in tight spaces, paddling backwards with control, bracing, being able to paddle as a group, team rescue skills, self rescue skills including rolling.  To maximize your success and fun, we highly recommend taking Liquid Fusion Kayaking's Touring Ocean Rock Gardens Class or a comparable rock garden class prior to taking the Pour-Over Class.  Dressing for immersion (wetsuits or drysuits) is required.  For more recommended skills check out the American Canoe Association Coastal Kayaking Skills - Level 3.
