Lesson/ Coaching with expert instructor lasts for approximately 90 minutes. The basic fee of $120 pays for the instructor for 90 minutes for one to six students. If students bring their own equipment, there is no additional fee for 1-6 students. If we provide rental equipment, an additional rental fee of $30 applies per set of rental equipment. A private lesson including rental gear for one person is $150, plus $30 per additional student. Maximum number of students is 6 per instructor. For groups of 7-12, a second instructor is required. All students must be in good health and be able to swim unassisted. Beginner classes: learn from an expert and have fun from the first try. We guarantee that you will be able to paddle on your first day and will learn the basics without the frustration of learning from mistakes. By learning good technique right from the start you will avoid getting used to bad habits that are more difficult to “unlearn” later. Intermediate and advanced classes available as well.
