What this workshop includes:
Join IMUA OLA, The Stanley Edge and Puakea Designs in this full day workshop to overcome fear and build confidence on dry land and on the water. In the morning, Andrea (IMUA OLA) and Leanne (The Stanley Edge) will guide you through the path of overcoming fear to make you fearless and courageous. In the afternoon, they will walk you through how to use this courage as the foundation to build your confidence. Participants will then get to put this into practice on land and on the water.

This one day workshop is programmed for those looking to take life to the next level, overcome fear of what is holding them back, unleash their confidence or build their paddling from within.

Our goal with this workshop is to impact lives beyond paddling or the Gorge, where participants will come away with a greater belief in themselves and a more intimate connection with their paddle craft.

To participate in the workshop, each participant must:
- Supply their own paddle craft - SUP, Kayak, Surfski, Canoe…
- Comfortable swimming in open water.
- Must have some paddling experience.
- Notify Puakea Designs and Coaches of any medical condition that could affect your ability to perform at this workshop. Please let us know in the form we will send out to workshop registrants.
- Sign the Liability Waiver:

Your safety is our #1 priority which is why this camp is capped.

Important Notes: All participants must supply their own craft and have a way to transport it. They must also supply their own paddle and hydration for this workshop. Participants must wear a PFD and leash during the on-water sessions of this workshop.

Rentals: If you do not have access to your own craft, please let us know in the form we will send out to workshop registrants so we can coordinate a canoe rental for you.
