Kayak Lessons for Newbie in Denver

Anyone know of a place that i can get lessons of the basics (bracing, rolling, etc) in Denver? I'm a newbie and scared to death of the water without the basic skills - but very excited to get into it. Already got all the equipment for the new adventures.

In no particular order here are three.

Confluence Kayak

Renaissance Adventure Guides

Colorado White Water Association

Any of these should get you started. Winter is a great time to learn the basics and practice your roll in the pool. Don't be discouraged if you can't roll after your first class. Some people get it 1st try some need several classes. Once you get your roll practice every chance you get.

Good luck

Look for pool times to be posted on this site, usually starting in January.
