Really excited to help announce over at The Gale’s, that Shawna Franklin and Leon Somme are coming to guest coach the first annual event.
Shawna and Leon were kind enough to pay us a visit to WMCKA a few years ago. They had a huge impact on the symposium, and on the coaches they worked with during the event. Their energy and commitment to sea kayaking is so infectious that you can’t help but want to get more committed to the sport. They have so much to offer the Gales with their approach to teaching in textured water, rescues, risk management, and paddle skills, you’d be crazy not to take advantage of the opportunity to work with them.
I was fortunate enough to visit Shawna and Leon on Orca Island a year later. Wow is all I can say. Orca Island and Body Boat Blade is one of the coolest destination spots for paddling I’ve ever seen.
