Please note that on the side of this page is a new option. I have decided to offer instruction in two ways.
Option 1: if you are in the Central North Carolina Area and want to learn to paddle feel free to contact me for pricing and scheduling. I teach a progression from the forward stroke through rolling, navigation, and expedition planning.
Option 2: If you don't live in the Central North Carolina Area I offer instruction through video. If you record yourself doing various strokes I can critique you, via Skype or iChat and give you skills to work on. This process actually works very well, as we BOTH get to see what you are doing, right and wrong and work towards getting your skills where you want them. If you don't have the equipment to record yourself paddling I can assist you in making inexpensive camera purchases and discuss mounting options.
In the not to distant future - probably January - I will be offering an online expedition planning E course. This will teach you the skills that you need to plan your own adventures safely. Always wanted to Hike in Alaska but didn't know where to begin? Begin with the E course to teach you the in's and out's of expedition planning. Until I offer the E course I am available as a consultant for expedition planning. Contact me for more information.
