Skill development – the cornerstone for kayaking happiness

Building competency and developing good paddling skills are an important part of enjoying the kayaking experience. With practice and proper training, our members are able to safely paddle some of the world’s best paddling wilderness right on our doorstep!

PIKA actively promotes the development of its members skills by recommending Paddle Canada sea kayak courses, providing one day free clinics and holding practice sessions in pools, lakes and the ocean.

Free clinics and practice sessions

Attend a free clinic or practice session to learn a new skill or to hone your current practice. Clinics and practices on paddling strokes, directional control, towing and other skills are listed in the trips calendar. For pool practice sessions, see News & Events.
