DemoFest is designed with the experience paddler in mind. If you have never been in a whitewater kayak before, you should want to try one of our 1-, 2-, 3- or 5-day clinics or check out our 1-day novice kayak experience 

Group Ability Descriptions:

Group A = Class I-II Paddlers.  Beginner whitewater paddlers who have received basic whitewater kayak instruction (2-days), know how to wet exit, and have an understanding of basic maneuvers, strokes, and edging.  Have had some river experience in class I-II rapids.

Group B = Class II-III Paddlers. Creative boaters with class II-III ability in whitewater rapids.  These boaters have a roll but it may need refinement.  They are starting to apply fancy strokes for creative control and can perform Class III moves in class II water.

Group C = Class III-IV Paddlers. Dryway caliber (solid class III-IV) paddlers with excellent rolls and a plethora of strokes for style points.  They are smooth and efficient in all river maneuvers, but are still open to learning and refinement.
