Paddling Clinic - Rocky Fork Creek

Apr 21st 10:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Are you looking to develop your whitewater paddling skills?  This class will focus on developing effective skills, timing, and boat control.  This class will be held on the beautiful Rocky Fork and Paint Creek, (class I-3), located just east of Hillsboro, approximately 1 ½ hours from Dayton.  Participants will need to have some previous paddling experience.  At a minimum you should be comfortable in either a whitewater or crossover kayak, using a spray skirt and performing wet exits.  It would be preferred that you have some moving water experience and a good knowledge of basic whitewater strokes. There will be a minimum requirement of protective clothing that you will need to participate in this clinic, due to the expected cold water and air temperatures that we typically have in April.

Cost will be $85 per person for a one day class.  Reservations required & limited. 

To pre-register please email the following information to wwwh@erinet.com:  Name, Address, City, Zip, Phone(s), Email Address, Any Medical Problems that we should be aware of, are you over 18, and a brief description of any paddling experience that you have (do you have a roll, rivers that you have paddled, classes that you’ve taken…).  Which boat do you plan to paddle?  What is your approx. height and weight. Once you’ve submitted your information someone will follow up with a phone call.  If you have questions or concerns or need additional information call (937) 222-7020 or email wwwh@erinet.com

Are you are looking to get into a whitewater class but don’t meet the requirements to attend this class?  Not to worry.  Additional classes will be scheduled and they will be ideal for the boater that is just getting started!
