How are Babes kayak training events different from others?
Babes with Blades is different from any other kayak gathering. Of course, the obvious difference is that we’re gender-specific, catering to women only. Our participants are women, our coaches are women, and our support staff is women.We have found that learning in a women-only environment is a collaborative experience. We encourage, but we don’t push; you can learn at your own pace.
We believe that training should be fun. For that reason, we offer unique classes that use creative exercises and plenty of chances to be silly. Babes classes mostly focus on concepts that you can apply to your paddling activities as your goals progress.
Every Babes kayak skills event is designed to be both relaxing & productive. We take care of as many details for you as possible; in most cases, you don’t have to worry about where you will stay or what to bring for breakfast. Whenever possible, we provide accommodations, a Saturday night dinner, & breakfast on Saturday & Sunday. And we practice Leave No Trace, which means that your meals are served on real plates with real silverware. After all, we’re not animals.
We’re strongly focused on making sure that you are comfortable & happy, both on the water and off. Our goal is to create a kayak training experience that you’ll remember with a smile.
