1-day Clinic

Improve Your River Running in our Steep Creekin’ Kayak Clinic in Vermont

Did you join us for our Spring Steep Creek Clinic? Have you wanted to hone your advanced skills toward running creeks and more advanced lines? This one-day clinic, for advanced closed canoe and kayak paddlers only, teaches the specific techniques of creeking including boofing, catching micro-eddies, and reading steep rapids on the fly. We will be practicing these skills on the Dryway section of the Deerfield River. If you want to explore the advanced lines on the Dryway, this clinic is for you.

The Dryway Monroe Bridge section of the Deerfield River is a Class III-IV whitewater run. The pool drop nature of the river and the many different lines through the rapids offer a great environment for working on creek boating skills in a low stress environment as well as the potential to run rapids multiple times.

This clinic is taught by top river runners who pass on their years of experience and in-depth knowledge of creeking technique. Our instructor to student ratio for this clinic is 1:3. We stress the use of good judgment in analyzing routes and minimizing risk.
