Kayak Foundations

Efficiency, control, and independent thinking

Kayak Foundations is a 4-day town-based course, utilizing our base, the beautiful beaches Loreto, and the variety of equipment we have at hand.

Explore how good technical skills can help you go further and have more fun! Build a more instinctive mastery of principles and strokes. Plan and execute a day trip in moderately protected waters.

We meet for about 6 hours per day. Many of the sessions in Kayak Foundations feel like playtime through guided discovery, which is a fun and effective way to learn. Receive personalized feedback and suggestions at key moments to help you towards your goals.

Kayak Foundations is just what its name says–a broad base on which to build your enjoyment of paddling. You will go away with safe boat-handling principles, rescue basics, and specific maneuvering skills, as well as an enthusiasm to keep getting out there and exploring!

Build on your learning by adding more day trips, or a wind & waves day, surf class, a One Beach Rental, or join us for a 6-day Primer or Learning in Paradise trip and put your learning to immediate use.

This course is run from Loreto and includes kayaking equipment and lunches. We recommend lodging or camping listed on our Lodging page. Please reserve it directly with the hotel or campground when you register.
