Pucon Classics II to IV+, Week of Rivers
January 12 - 19, 2019
Many kayak clubs and associations have a challenge in that often the advanced kayakers feel stuck helping the beginners and intermediates. PKH has your group solution. Daily, we’ll have two trip offerings, one to the more advanced and one to the more development sections. Meaning advanced kayakers get challenged and get to run stouts and development kayakers can relax and improve on proper features. Both get professional instruction and each night back at the quincho fire you can share stories with your favorite provisions.
This group will spend less time camping and traveling and more time relaxing and paddling. The stability of less travel and luxury of a variety of nearby rivers means you’ll have more time to get personal coaching and still explore.
We’ve got a group where a couple want to run waterfalls, a few are still swimming class III, most of us have solid rolls but want to just paddle rivers… Can you handle that? – Randy Lindowski, Pikes Peak Whitewater Club (Colorado, USA)
