Women’s Only Surfski Weekend Workshop

May 17, 2019 - May 19, 2019

We’re pretty excited about it!  I don’t know of another event like it.  We have some top notch coaches.  Some of the best women paddlers in North America.

Heather Nelson: Bio
I love adventure, fitness and racing.

Sally Wallick: Bio
Having strong mentors throughout her paddling career, Sally is excited to give back and teach other girls to race smart, train hard, and most importantly….have a ton of fun on the water!!

Tamlyn Böhm: Bio
Tamlyn is a “paddler” in the truest sense of the word and is equally at home in a sprint kayak, surfski, outrigger canoe or stand up paddle board.

Ana Swetish: Bio
16 year old Ana first appeared on the paddling as a young child paddling in the back of a double surfski with her dad, Tom.

All four are crushers of Male Ego!!  Certainly mine has been crushed by all four of them at one time or another.

REGISTRATION OPENS 9 am March 23rd 2019

Coast Outdoors and Deep Cove Kayak Centre are excited to offer a 2 day Women’s Only Surfski Workshop in beautiful Deep Cove BC. You can think of this workshop as a “Stay-cation” if you are from the lower mainland.

The goal of the workshop is to gain new skills or to develop old skills to increase your ability to be confident while surfskiing. You will also have fun and meet new people!

Who should take this workshop?
You don’t need to be a pro to participate in this workshop, but the first day of this course should not be your first time in a surfski. This is NOT an Introduction to surfski paddling. You should be able to paddle a surfski with some confidence. You should be sure that you can handle the surfski you are using. You can sign up as a beginner, but you should take an introduction to surfski paddling, or gain equivalent experience prior to participating in this course. Class groups will be organized base on experience.

Cost $295 + GST  ($50 surfski rental for two days.  Limited quantity available
