Big Water Weekend Refresher
Start your spring off on the right foot!
Our Big Water Refresher course is all about reacquainting yourself with springtime higher water flows and learning big-water specific theories and skills in a professional and safety-conscious environment. This course will be especially helpful for experienced paddlers at the intermediate level.
This weekend course provides a day of theory and skill development at Palmer Rapids, followed by a day-long river trip down the lower Madawaska so you can train for your big water lines and try out some new moves under the safety and guidance of a professional instructor!
