Sea Kayaking - In 2017, we will be expanding our Art of Sea Kayaking Mendocino Programs to include 5 day Intermediate/Advanced Adventures. We will be continuing our monthly 2 day Art of Sea Kayaking Mendocino Series May - August and offering our advanced beginner/intermediate 5 day Art of Sea Kayaking Mendocino Course over Labor Day Weekend. BCU 3 Star Sea trainings and assessments and private lessons/custom tours will round out our sea kayak instructional program.
Whitewater - LFK's 2017 river kayaking program starts in January with LFK's Whitewater River Kayaking Class. This class is designed for sea kayakers and other paddlers who have a solid foundation of paddling skills and are looking to learn to run whitewater rivers. LFK's systematic approach will build upon your current skills to give you the skills for running whitewater rivers. The next class in our progression is Precision River Running. Precision River Running is for experienced whitewater kayakers looking to improve and expand their river running skills. LFK is also offering guided whitewater river runs. These are scheduled on the Monday after our weekend classes for our students to apply their skills and enjoy a day of river running with us.
Surf Kayaking - We have been excited about our students' success in our 2 day surf classes so we are offering more of these in 2017. Whether you are learning the surfzone for the first time, learning to surf, or working on making moves on the wave; our 2 day surf classes are paced for maximum success. With 2 days, you get different surf zone opportunities and a skill progression that builds on the previous day. For those looking for specific skills, we have private surf lessons and safaris.
Rolling - We have a beautiful community pool and a flexible schedule. If you want to learn to roll or need a rolling tune-up, we can help.
Wilderness First Aid - Know how to help others in the wilderness. LFK and the Mendocino Woodlands are hosting Bobbie Foster to teach a 16 hour course that includes a 3 year Wilderness First Aid Certification.
In the spring we will be putting our summer tour schedule up. Our summer tours will include our family friendly Noyo Meander, our mellow evening wildlife tours - Sunset Bird Paddle, and our wet and wild Whitewater of the Sea Adventures. We look forward to having you come play with us in 2017!
Best of days on the water,
Jeff Laxier and Cate Hawthorne
