Well, the Lyons Games are next weekend. There is a great bit of buzz around the creek race, but for those that are looking for the best instruction you could possibly ask for, its all right there.
We will have Freestyle instruction from the Mens and Womans current World Champions Emily Jackson and Nick Troutman, as well as the super high fly'n Stephen Wright, maybe even EJ as well. There are two high end instruction classes of which one is for intermediates, and one for an advanced skill development.
Ruth Gordon, last years World Champ, will be providing womans specific paddling clinics for beginner and this too has gotten super high reviews as the best instruction you can find. If you are looking to learn with other women... this is it!
There will also be a Creeking Clinic offered by none other than Clay Wright. Clay is the best Creek instructor I can think of and has tremendous skill development to pass on to those that are just getting into the steep creek game and want to understand advanced boof moves, stroke timing, how to best read lines, and an all around gigantic confidence boost to how to best creek boat...
These are unique clinics taught by the best in our sport. I would ask that anyone that has taken these clinics at past LOG's please post your experiences for others to know how fantastic these are. This is not your typical clinic.
Please contact me at marty at jackson kayak dot com. Or feel free to sign up via the LOG
There are also more basics clinics as well. For those looking to get playboating basics and also intro to river running, the Lyons Outdoor Games has skills development for all this year.
Please feel free to contact me at any time, but with these flows I will be on the river all day today!!!
Fire it up!
