Beginning Whitewater

Taking the ferry to the whitewater
class
on a dramatic evening.

 

 

Bucky and James helped with the
whitewater class!
(the weather did improve!)
James walks sleepily by while Bucky makes sure the boats are in a straight
line.

 

Learning River Hydrology

 

 

 

Andree demonstrates mooning the
current –
on a lesser scale.

Instructor Development

Sybille can’t believe her kayak
got taken away during this
table top scenario at the coastal kayaking instructor workshop.
She got too close to an orca swimming
in this shipping lane.

 

“Coastal
Brian” uses a paddle float to roll his
hand made baidarka.

 

Instructor Certification

 

Practicing for the video on a misty day off Washington
Park near Anacortes, WA.

Swiftwater Rescue

Dave Krause shows us more knots
during this three day course through Rescue 3 International

 

We
practiced swimming and catching eddies with just our bodies and then
with boogie boards and fins.
Don’t try
this on your own!
