paddling strokes practiced by students to maneuver safely and comfortably on still water.**
This canoe class focuses on the basics. In the classroom we discuss paddling safely, local destinations and equipment.
On the water, we introduce basic paddle strokes needed to efficiently move a canoe through the water.
