Efficiency, control, and independent thinking
Kayak Foundations is a 4-day town-based course, utilizing our classroom, 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 trip in moderately protected waters.
We meet for about 6 hours per day. Many of the sessions in Kayak Foundations feel like playtime, which is a fun and effective way to learn. Have a goal and receive suggestions or guiding questions at key moments.
Kayak Foundations is just that–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.
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.
