Introduction to the Surf Zone

July 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Paddling along the California coast and taking advantage of all the wonderful things it has to offer means becoming friends with the surf zone. This class is intended for sea kayakers who want to learn to handle themselves in the surf zone safely and in control. The class will be taught by Jennifer Yearley.

WHAT: We will learn about wave dynamics, beach characteristics, and how to identify hazards. We will practice reading the water, bracing on breaking waves, sidesurfing, and the use of tactics and timing to launch and land safely and under control.

For sea kayakers, this is the 2nd in our Progression of Classes designed to prepare you for paddling on the open coast in Level 4 conditions.

The class will be conducted at Half Moon Bay.

WHEN: We will meet at 9.00 AM and be off the water no later than 4.00 PM.

COST: $129.00 (Minimum enrollment – 3, maximum enrollment – 5)
