Introduction to Kayaking SK101

Are you new to kayaking? Did you miss our SK101 Introduction to Sea Kayaking course in March?  While not nearly as good, these are a series of presentations developed by CPA members to assist new paddlers.

  • CLOTHING FOR KAYAKING was developed by Rob Pearlman for the 2011 SK101 class.  Also, there is a link to a resource list.

  • KAYAK RACKS AND LOADING was developed by Sue and Rich Stevens for the 2019 SK101 class to explain how to transport your kayak on your car. For more information to complement the PowerPoint presentation and tips on kayak storage, look HERE and HERE.
