Hampton Harbor Skills Session - Sat. Aug 25 - 9:00am


Recommended Posts

When: Saturday,August 25

Time: 9:00 - 12:00 (some may stay longer)

Place: Hampton Harbor, put-in is in the beach parking lot next to

Seacoast Kayak

Cost: FREE

Once again, this will be an open-format skills session. You can work

on whatever you want. We've starting out in the calm waters inside

the harbor and then moving out into the entrance of the harbor for

some beginner surf. This week, we may work on some open water


This is a great chance for novice paddlers to learn from more

experienced paddlers and improve your paddling skills.

Experienced paddlers, this a a great way to "pass it forward" and

share your skills and experience. Last session we had 19 particpants

from every skill level and age group.

Examples of skills practiced: forward stroke, reverse stroke, edging

& turning, sweep strokes, low & high bracing, rolling, self and

assisted rescues, etc.

This venue offers a trememdous opportunity to better your paddling

skills. The inner harbor has flat, protected water...ideal for

learning basics. For those more adventurous or looking to take

their paddling to the next level....just a short paddle and we can

be on the open ocean off Seabrook Beach.


ALL LEVELS are welcome. Rec boat paddlers are welcome but will be

strongly encouraged to stay inside the harbor and not venture out

into the open ocean. Sea kayakers wanting to go into the open ocean

should have a spray skirt, paddle float and pump at a minimum. PFD's

must be worn at all times while in the boats.
