Learn the Greenland Style of Kayaking in this Two-Day Workshop
The peoples of Greenland have been using kayaks for thousands of years and it is fascinating to learn their approach to paddling.
Join Portland Paddle and Kayak Ways for an introduction to the traditional Greenland style of kayaking! World renowned instructors and competition rollers Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson will guide you through the differences between the Greenland Qajaq and their western descendants, and teach the foundational strokes, braces, and rolls of Greenland paddling. Join us for a fun two days learning “the dark art of the skinny stick”!
