Skills Tune-Up with Gordon Brown

Now is the time to start thinking about how you want to develop your paddling this coming year. What could be a better way than to start the season with a comprehensive tune-up for you? This unique development program is designed to take you from your current level of ability and build on what you already know and do. Based in the Southern Vancouver Island, it is accessible and available. The progressive nature of the course allows time for practice between sessions and also includes skills to aid in reflection.
