I've just heard that Maligiaq Padilla, National Greenland Kayaking Champion several times over, will be in the Seattle area on October 8th-13th. He will be giving group as well as private individual instruction along with Dubside on Greenland style paddling and rolling. The classes are sponsored through George Gronseth's Kayak Academy. Information on dates and prices can be found on their website. This is a rare opportunity to learn Greenland paddling from an actual Greenlander and meet a kayaking legend. There are also rumors of having some of the classes up in Deception Pass. Sign up now while there's still room!
