This program is designed for kids ages 10-16 with paddling experience in kayaks, who are looking for a new and exciting experience on the water! Surfskis are open-cockpit kayaks that are lighter, faster and more performance-oriented. Cates Park Paddling Centre now has brand-new fleet of youth-specific surfskis! Throughout the week our experienced instructors will lead games and activities so participants will learn:

  • how to manoeuvre their ski effectively.
  • how to remount their ski from the water and help others remount.
  • about ocean safety: equipment, tides and currents, weather, and safe group travel.
  • how to paddle forward efficiently.
  • how to ride waves.

Cates Park Paddling Centre reserves the right to cancel any program at any time.
