Surf Ski Checkout Clinic:

These kayaks are described above in the Fleet section. These kayaks are for experienced kayakers who want to challenge themselves.  Once you have completed a surf ski checkout and demonstrated recovery back onto the surf ski, you have full access to these boats.  For people new to kayaking, it is recommended that you become comfortable in the narrow touring kayaks first and then select a clinic in late summer when the water is warmer.
