We will start out at Stone Cliff on the New River and go over different safety components to think about when on a river with paddle boards. We will also go over equipment you should have or leave at home. Next we will move to the eddy and practice river specific stroke. We will then move into the current and practice out newly learned skills. After some practice we will head down stream through two sections with ripples along a 2 mile stretch of river down to Dun Glen.
