This lesson is focused on having more personal instruction (5 to 1 ratio). There won't be 20 people hanging out in 1 small eddy trying to learn whatever they can from a free clinic. You will be spending a full day with one of the pros listed above. Don't miss your chance to learn from the best!!

apples to apples

mountain -- you are perceptive in noticing the obvious price difference, but how did you miss the last sentence in marko's post? the one that outlined the basic difference in the two concepts & why one might want to PAY for the WS lesson.

at any rate, thanks again to CKS for offering both of these cool options to colorado paddlers ...

Thanks for pointing that out to mountain for me ToddG

I am not putting down the FREE paddle with Dagger but I went to one last year and didn't learn squat. There was 25 people trying to fight for eddy space. I think I got about 3 rides in until I gave up trying to fight for instruction with the other 24 people.

Basically you will get what you pay for!!!! Isn't that how everything in life is????

huh?

So far our ratio has been about 4 to 1 so im not sure where the 20 to 1 comment came from. Sorry you had a busy PWTPs last year but with 4 paddlers from Dagger arriving it would mean there is 80+ participants? I don't think so. But if you want to drop a hundred bucks for a lesson time then give er'. Were just trying to give some tips and have fun on the river. Thats pretty much it. See you in Colorado soon.

Both will be awesome

Paddle with the pros this Sat May 28 at CKS Nathrop is always fantastic. The Waveport lesson will be an incredible value for those looking for a full days instruction. If I had time, I would do them both. Call CKS for questions 888 CO KAYAK

Thanks Earl
