Still room in this weekends SWR class.

Mike Mathers will be here doing a two day SWR class. It will be here at the shop Saturday 8:30- 4:30 for classroom and dryland stuff and out at the Foxton section (Sunday 9:00-5:00) for on water drills and practice.

The class is $175 and call 303-433-3676 for details.

If you have never taking a Swiftwater Rescue Class NOW is the time. You do not have to be a expert level kayaker to gain tons of knowledge. In fact this class is a must for anyone who reads this site. It always amazes me that every raft guide goes through a SWR class and very few kayakers take a SWR class. Why? I have no idea- maybe we just feel that a rafter can always bail us out if we get into trouble.

For me I feel a SWR class keeps me from getting into trouble. If I do get into trouble the knowledge gained helps me to fix the problem quickly. Be safe- take the class.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

The best class you can take for swiftwater. A reminder, Mike is the same guy that instructed our 1 day class at Paddle with the Pros last year in Lawson. Ask anyone that took that class how good he is. The one we did last year was just a quick intro and education. This is the full on class. I highly recomend it even to those that came out last year. The full class will teach so much more.
