Learning Videos and Repairs

Here at the Florida Kayak School and Tours we want to provide you with the greatest opportunity to learn and grow your skills-set as a paddler.  Through this you will become more comfortable, confident, and capable on the water.  It is our sincere hope that when you are on the water you will have a more enjoyable on-water and in-nature experience.  Also, with your knowledge you will be able to help others. This will make paddling safer for everyone.  We advise our clients, prior to the class, to review the videos that will pertain to the class.  These visual demonstrations will expedite the learning.  Should you find another video that we could add to this list please share it with us.
