We gave Dan a challenge : coach our family of 4 (adults late 40s, son of 15, daughter of 13)in 2 days so we can do a white water river trip on day 3. We achieved our goal! It was an awesome (and challenging) experience .
We had not done white water kayaking before and I particularly felt the fear of the power of the river. We cannot praise Dan’s coaching approach highly enough. He is very clear on the importance of technique which he teaches you . With his years of experience , Dan is constantly accessing each all of you and is able to help each person learn what they need to. He also enforced the importance of the teamwork of safely kayaking together. We had such fun , felt so safe , and are coming back for more!
