Kayak Foundations

Efficiency, control, and independent thinking

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.

Kayak Foundations is a 4-day course based out of Tripui Resort, 20-minutes south of Loreto and conveniently located between the mountains and the sea.

Kayak Foundations is a broad base on which to build your enjoyment of paddling. 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. 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.
