Paddle Canada has made a name change for one of it's programs. The Paddle Canada Introduction to Kayak Skills course is now simply named Basic Kayak Skills. The change was made to make things consistent with the other Paddle Canada programs (canoe, SUP, river kayak), and to keep it simple. It is just a name change, but it will affect the names of the courses I offer in 2014 and beyond. So, if you are looking for the Introduction to Kayaking Skills courses that I have been offering in past years, it's now Basic Kayak Skills, or just Basic Kayak. Same great program, just a more basic name.
