GCP Nugget Slalom Clinic July 6, 2008 South Fork of the American
by Jessica Subido 8/8/2008


I held a slalom clinic with a focus on improving river running skills. Fourteen eager GCP paddlers participated last Sunday, July 6 at the Nugget, directly upstream of Chili Bar. We reviewed concepts such as posture, forward strokes, bow draws, sweep strokes. Using gates we practiced efficient eddy peel in and peel outs techniques, offset gates, and reading and using the water features to the paddler's benefit.
