Learn to Outrigger Paddle


Paddlers are introduced to the basics of paddling technique, canoe mechanics, and extending their skills to various seat positions in the canoe. For example, they may be encouraged to try the “stroke” seat that sets the crew’s pace; they may also develop some basic skills as a steers person, learning to navigate the canoes from point to point.
