World’s Best Kayak School

There is a revolution happening and its epicenter is the Ottawa River. Radical kayak designs featuring shorter lengths have turned the paddling world literally upside down. Whether you call it rodeo, freestyle or playboating, it’s hot, it’s now and it’s "holy land" is the Ottawa River. While the technique and boat designs make hot boaters hotter, they make the learning curve even faster for beginner and novice paddlers. There has never been a better time for you to start paddling. When you consider the world’s top paddlers, the hottest boats and the best freestyle river, referring to Ottawa Kayak School as the World’s Best Kayak School is anything but boasting. Come see for yourself...
