Whitewater Single Kayak Trips in Kernville, California
Exciting, dynamic and rewarding, whitewater kayaking is the most challenging of all the various styles of kayaking available. With this class, we've successfully created river kayakers for 26 years. Our proven teaching method takes you through a gradual progression that maximizes the fun. We've designed our beginning class for those who have never river kayaked before, or who have played around with kayaking some, but have not had formal instruction in the fundamentals of river kayaking. Take this class if you are a sea kayaker or surf kayaker paddling on the river for the first time. The 101 class starts on the flatwater of Isabella Lake, where you will learn essential boating skills such as the wet-exit, self-rescue, partner-assisted rolls and efficient stroke technique. At the end of the morning session, we will break for a hearty lunch and preview the afternoon's challenges. We spend the afternoon on the lake developing more of the steering and balancing skills needed to do river maneuvers such as peel-outs, ferries, and eddy turns. These and other techniques are required to become a safe, efficient whitewater kayaker. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.

Owner:Tom and Marianne
Like brothers and sisters do, Tom and Marianne Moore started out competing with one another. Who could swim faster, who could give the bigger noogie, who could burp louder? That (mostly) all changed in 1985. They'd each come to work on the Kern and they'd each fallen for the Wild Scenic River and the Southern Sierra Nevada. Holy smokes was there a lot of fun to be had in these mountains! So the siblings opted to shake hands, pull on their big people pants, and start a whitewater rafting and mountain sports company together. Today we offer: the oldest, largest, and most experienced whitewater kayaking school in SouthernCalifornia.guided whitewater raft trips on the Kern through Kernville as well as on theUpper Kern's Class III-V sections north of town. a brick-and-mortar outfitters store stocked with gear, clothing, and gifts forpaddling and mountain sports adventures.a central location in the river town of Kernville and a view of the Kern from thedeck.since 1995 an online River Store, where an actual person who knows paddling willhandle your order andor answer the customer service line.recreational kayak trips on Lake Isabella.rock climbing courses at local climbing areas.river tube rentals and shuttles at the end of the whitewater season. standup paddleboard (SUP) rentals classes .support for the Kern Valley River Council, the annual Kern River Festival, and Kern River Streambed and Park Restoration Project.award-winning location-scouting for film, television, and print media.
