Custom Paddlesports Instruction (Kayak, Canoe, SUP)

Custom Kayaking and Canoeing Instruction

If you prefer individualized attention from your kayak, canoe or stand-up-paddleboard instructor or have a group, family, limited dates or other instruction needs, a specialized custom tailored clinic could be ideal.  We regularly run custom clinics as small as one person or as large as twelve people. To set up your custom clinic follow these simple steps:

  1. Come up with the skills you want to work on and the date(s) that work best for you.
  2. Call our reservation office at 800 532-7483 and let us know what you want to work on and your preferred dates, or fill out our Custom Clinic Request Form and submit it online. 
  3. We will work to set up an instructor for your clinic and we will get back to you to book the clinic.  

Please note that we can not fill all custom requests due to instructor availability. The more lead time and possible dates you can give us, the better your chances of being able to book a custom clinic.  On busier days, we may ask you to provide a vehicle capable of carrying the instructor, students, boats and gear.

We suggest that beginner paddlers take our scheduled two-day, three-day or five-day Novice Kayak or Canoe clinics because of the opportunity they provide to learn with other beginners and acquire a complete background in the sport.

The following statement is required by state law: "Before placing your order, please inform your server if a person in your party has a food allergy."

We do not use nuts in our food, but can not guarantee that the ingredients in our meals do not contain nuts or other food allergens. If you have food allergies or other special dietary needs, we strongly suggest you bring your own bag lunch in non-glass containers and we will pack it with the other lunches on your trip. Please inform our office at 800 532-7483 or info@zoaroutdoor.com if you intend to do this.
