ACA Surf Ski Instructor Certification Workshop L2/L3- February 24th-26th- Savannah, Georgia- $395

Become the first accredited L2/L3 ACA Surf Ski Instructor with Ben Lawry during this historic three day course. These courses were recently added to the ACA curriculum and will be the first ever Surf Ski ICW.

Open to all ACA instructors, non instructors, and experienced paddlers to become certified in this increasingly popular side of paddle sports. A great opportunity for an existing L3+ coastal kayak instructor to expand their educational horizons to the fringes of coastal paddling.

From the instructor, Ben Lawry. “The goal of the new ACA Surf Ski Instructor Certification Workshop is to give Surf Ski paddlers who want to teach a solid and safe base to start from. We cover all the basics of Surf Skis from carrying the skis to paddling them. We cover rescues, both self and assisted, and we discuss the safety of trip planning, groups awareness and responsibility. The instructor at the end of the workshop will have a solid base from which to start coaching people safely and efficiently in the Surf Ski environment giving their students great base skills from which the can grow their paddling skills for the rest of their paddling careers.”

When: February 24th, 25th, 26th, 2017
