Nissequogue River State Park, Long Island

Experienced expedition paddler Dov Neimand and instructor trainer extraordinaire Chriss Raab will run an L2 coastal kayak instructor certification workshop (ICW) on the Long Island Sound off
Nissequogue River State Park. The focus of the ICW will revolve around three central goals.

  • Train and certify instructor candidates at their paddling levels, up to L2.
  • Help instructor candidates to develop a solid individual kayaking pedagogy.
  • Sharpen and develop candidates personal paddling and group management skills in L2 conditions. 

If you love kayaking, have had previous instruction or hit the books hard and you're ready to start teaching others, then this course is for you.

Dov Neimand is an experienced teacher with over 4,500 expedition nautical miles under his belt. Everything that can go wrong, has happened to him, and he has a track record of making sure it doesn't happen to his students.
Chris Raab is an ACA Instructor Trainer (IT). He has been a leader in kayak instruction in the New York and New Jersey area for over 20 years.  Besides taking a keen interest in sea and surf, he is an expert in traditional kayak construction and techniques.

The price is $150/day for instructor candidates and $75/day for practice students. Spaces are limited and available on a first come first serve basis. The practice-student option is a good choice for paddlers who want to work on their L2 skills, but have no interest in instructor certification.

Spaces can be reserved with a non refundable deposit of $100. Reservations made after May 1st will incur a late fee of $25. All final payments must be made before the course starts.

The option also exists to take this course as an instructor update, an ICE, or and IDW, so please reach out if interested.
