Jackson Kayak Fun Tour
Jackson Kayak Champions are coming to TVille with Zoar Outdoor on Thursday, April 27, 2023!
Freestyle Clinic with World Kayak Champions Emily Jackson and Nick Troutman plus the Hargrove family.
Join us for a fun evening of boat demoing, freestyle clinics, and more! We will be playing at the park and play, and, if weather permits, we’ll follow it up with a Pizza Party! This free freestyle clinic is open to the first 12 sign-ups. We’ll be paddling at the Tariffville Gorge Park & Play in Connecticut (class II-III run), and Emily, Nick, and the Hargrove family will be sharing some of their tips and techniques for challenging yourself with new freestyle boating skills. Clinic runs 4PM – 7PM.
Class II-III paddlers looking to learn freestyle playboating skills and take their paddling to the next level! All folks are welcome to socialize on shore and in the eddy.
We will be playing in the park and if weather permits follow it up with a Pizza Party! Otherwise we will meet at the Cracker Barrel Pub for some post paddling pizza with the crew! SYOTR!
While some of the flatwater areas we use are quite warm in June, July, and August, the River is always cool, regardless of the time of year or air temperature. When packing your paddling clothes, please plan accordingly, especially if you are coming early or late in the season (April, May, September, and October). Our clinics will run rain or shine.

If you own your own equipment, we suggest you use it in the clinic to get used to its quirks.
