hi all,
just signed up for the 9th slot..
I am a newbie to yaks.. I will be bringing my malibu II unless you think I should demo a t140 or something else...but my thoughts are that  I can't afford/ fit in another boat so I might as well learn the characteristics of my own boat...any thoughts???

what the hell is bracing anyway...?


Welcome and thanks for signing up! You can bring your own boat if you want or demo one of ours, it's up to you.I would certainly recommend practicing self recovery in your own boat to get comfortable in you own boat.

Essentially, bracing is slapping a paddle blade flat against the water,using the water's resistance to produce momentary support, snapping the kayak back into position with your lower body, and correcting/preventing your capsize mid-tilt.Bracing also involves using the points of contact with your seat back,foot pegs/wells and/or thigh braces to stabilize and lean your boat in the surf to ride a wave and prevent capsize.

Bracing is an essential skill and we will spend some time discussing, demonstrating and practicing bracing in this class.

If you are using your Hobie I would remove and plug the mirage drive for the class.If you want you can use your boat for the rescue practice and use an MBK boat for the surf lesson.

Mirage drives don't do well in the surf.

Aaron,

Nathan and I will need to borrow some thigh braces and helmets.  He has a surf suit, I am in my farmer John or a 7 mil dive suit.  So my question is how much time will we be spending in the water before lunch?

Eugene,
I've got your helmets and thigh braces covered.

We will be spending less than 1/2 an hour in the water practicing rescues right before lunch.

Of course some of that depends on you and if you dump during paddle stroke or bracing practice. :smt002

Sorry, As with my other classes and tours, tagging along without registering is not acceptable.The class is limited to twelve for a reason...more personalized instruction for paying customers and safety in the surf zone.Also, all participants sign a waiver to participate.

Please sign up when we offer future classes.Thanks.

From the initial confirmation email, I believe it said like 9-3 or 5?  Uhm helmets? Looks like the snowboard helmet is going to see some salt  :drunken_smilie1:
