Jon Allen, of the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence, is our instructor. While the weather is still sunny and warm, students can wear snug fitting quick dry tops with shorts over swimsuits for the lake sessions. Please see below for Jon's recommendations for dress once the weather turns cold and we move to the river.
DRESS: A wet suit is recommended and should fit tight. The club has some which can be borrowed but fit and availability is first come first serve.
If a wetsuit is not available please bring snug clothes that are NOT MADE FROM COTTON.
First layer: Nylon, Polypro, underarmour etc are all good.
Second layer: Wool/ Fleece etc
Outerlayer: Wind breaker / Raincoat
Shorts and water shoes that won't fall off when you swim. (which is always a possibility).
Helmets, Paddles, Spraydecks, Lifejackets and Boats will all be provided.
Also, here is a good website to check out with the group. http://www.atlantickayaktours.com/pages/expertcenter/how-to-dress/How-to-Dress-1.shtml
We are very thrilled with the Academy's start up. Bring on the River!
