Level 2 takes paddlers away from the protected water of level 1 and exposes them to moderatly exposed coastlines. The program will help you improve the efficiency of your strokes and rescues and develop a deeper and more practical understanding of navigation, tides, and weather theory.  You will paddle in tidal current and learn how to land and launch as a group in surf. The program includes a roll clinic.  

The course is four days.
