Surf Ski Lesson:

Surfskis are the fastest kayaks in the fleet.  They are for experienced kayakers who want to challenge themselves.  Once you have completed a surf ski lesson 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.

Pool Sessions:

The Lord Byng pool is open to the public for kayak practice every Friday from 2000 to 2100.  This provides a great opportunity to practice or develop skills in the off season.  Group sessions are scheduled  from time to time using club equipment and are open to everyone in the fleet; if you want to organize a session for yourself or a group, please contact the kayaking director.
