What Do I Need to Bring?


• A spotlessly clean kayak. The lifeguards have expressed contempt and disdain for us in the past based on dead leaves, nuts and berries, and dead squirrels into the pool. So spray down your kayak inside and out BEFORE bringing it to the pool. And we will have a very happy Gabel Pool!
• If you are doing a lesson you NEED a sea kayak or a white water kayak, NO rec boats.
• Lifejacket. I know it seems silly while in the pool, with a lifeguard, BUT if I have to perform a hand of god on you, do you want me grabbing your face to get you upright in an emergency. Didn’t think so…
• Swimsuit (required), towel and goggles (not required but recommended)
• Sprayskirt: I know it seems silly to have to mention it, but yes you do need a spray skirt to do rolling.
