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.

This will be a great weekend to immerse yourself in the sport of surfski paddling and get top level coaching from some of North America’s best surfski paddlers. Develop skills, Get inspired, Make new friends.

Friday 7 PM Wine & Cheese Mixer at Coast Outdoors
Saturday 2 x 2.5 hour session on and off the water
Saturday Evening – Dinner at The Raven Pub: The Raven Dinner Options
Sunday 2 x 2.5 hour sessions on and off the water

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)
