Who is this for:
Take your kayaking skills to the next level and learn from the best! Tommy Hilleke is a 6x Green River Narrows Champion and has many first descents around the world. This experience is designed for people who already have the basics of kayaking down and are eager to refine their skills and technique to begin to run more challenging whitewater. Our main focus is to give you the physical, mental, and technical tools to keep you progressing when you return home.
Do you have a solid roll, but not confident enough to try a boof? In this course we will focus on learning to make Class IV moves in class II-III whitewater, as well as the intricacies of River Running. The friendly nature of the Salmon River with big, deep, pool drop rapids, allows a safe place to hone your skills. The focus will be on timing and placement of your strokes, boofing, eddy hopping, ferrying, scouting and setting safety. We have access to 45 miles of various Class I-IV whitewater framed in stunning scenery that provides the perfect mix of education and exploration!

Video analysis and coaching How it Works:
Surrounded by the Salmon Challis National Forest on 3 sides, our 23-acre hidden paradise sits directly on the banks of the Salmon River. All of our students will stay in canvas wall tents with cots or you may bring your own tent for camping. The recently remodeled Bath and Shower House is nearby. All meals will be prepared by a professional chef and we source as much local and organic food as possible. We do have a Trading Post where guests can purchase needed items in case they lose or forget something. *Please be sure to let us know if you have any special dietary restrictions.
