Our Instruction Style
The American Canoe Association (ACA) and the British Canoe Union (BCU) have each developed an extensive program for sea kayak instruction. ACA trained Scott Terriberry and BCU certified Ted Brechbill designed a unique curriculum that provides a combination of both ACA and BCU styles, offering a wide variety of techniques.
All our classes utilize aspects of both programs. You will receive some of the best instruction on the west coast. The combination of private instruction and highly qualified instructors provides you with individualized attention that maximizes your learning opportunity.
