Everything Kayak Expo Paddle Safety Class

November 4-5, 2006

Port Aransas, TX

Jeff Herman teaching kayaking skills

    Team Ocean Kayak's Jeff Herman and Captain Filip Spencer taught daily kayak safety classes at this year's Everything Kayak Expo in Port Aransas.  This was a great opportunity for Team Ocean Kayak to introduce kayaker's to the wonderful products our sponsors produce.   Participants were given an introduction to paddling a canoe or kayak.  Students were presented with basic information on dressing, paddle safety, potential hazards, and simple rescues.  A minimal paddle skill set was presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on the water.   Team Ocean Kayak was recently certified as instructors by the American Canoe Association, and this was a good opportunity to get our feet wet as instructors.
