Everything is Customized for You


All classes, trips and tours are created for you personally.  

While class blocks are structured, you decide which elements you want to learn, and we will build the exact class you want.  

Have a place you want to paddle?  We will build a custom trip for that location.  No idea where to start?  We are happy to recommend our favorites.
