Open Water Skills

May 19, 2018 - May 20, 2018

Gerry Side Surfing

Gerry Off To The Races


 This two day custom program is geared towards paddlers with rudimentary active water experience.  Sneaking in under the wire of Labor Day means easier traffic, minimal power boats and wide open venues.  This is your chance to kick start the paddle season.

Class size will be kept intimate:  Minnimum of 3 to run – maxed out at 5.  Instruction will be highly individualized so paddlers will get to work on what they want & need.  There is no pre determined itinerary.  Paddle venues include surf, rocks and tidal races along the eastern CT to mid coast RI area.  Presentation options include conditions forecasting tools (wind, weather, waves), navigation, kit options/stowage, forward stroke refinement, incident management, etc…

All you need is a kayak and clothing appropriate to conditions.  Rental kayaks are available and a list with suggested clothing/kit will be supplied.  For out of area participants, pre-season, hotel, cabin and campground rates and availability are good.  Gerry can help with suggestions or to hook you up with others for an Air BNB “party house”.


  •  2 day participants                                                                                          $300
  • 1 day participants                                                                                           $175
