Creeking clinics held @ Lyons Outdoor games from Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic!
The Lyons Outdoor Games is very proud to announce that Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic are going to be offering creeking clinics for anyone that is looking to step up their game in the creeking side of things. Ben and Chris don't typically need an introduction, but in case you aren't familiar, just type their names into google for a quick idea of the caliber of paddler we are talking about here. Ben has been named Adventurer of the year from National Geographic and Chris and he have 1st D'd some of the tallest waterfalls to the biggest volume steep creeks in the world...
These clinics will be next Thursday, June 9th and based on how many sign up, we may be able to perform 4 clinics (2 with Ben 2 with Chris)...
Creeking requires skills and strategy... Ben and Chris are two of the best creek boaters out there today and have a TON of experience to pass on to those that are looking to take the steps into class IV and V creeking.
This will not be a swift water rescue type course. This clinic is focused on developing paddling skills and techniques that will make your next creek runs more fun, more in control, and provide you feedback that is geared to making each stroke count.
We are going to offer two levels of clinics. I expect to have 4 people per group. This will be a first come first serve, so if you are thinking about it, please call me asap. Last year, these sold out immediately and is the reason I am bumping this to 4 clinics this year. At this time, I am scheduling noon and 4pm clinic start times on Thursday the 9th. The locations will be dependent on flows, but expecting our class V to be on SSV and the class IV creeking to be on Proving Grounds of the lower NSV. These runs are quintessential for developing the skills to read rapids, pick lines in stacked rapids, dial in your boofs and most of all to develop core skills to be safe and have a ball at one of the most exciting aspects of kayaking.
