Meet Your Guides
Our very own TRAK Pilots guide your experience.
Discovery Camps are coordinated and delivered by a team of TRAK Pilots. TRAK Pilots are owner-ambassadors and avid users of their own TRAK kayaks.
These folks are experts with their TRAK kayaks, and are also qualified instructors and experienced in the outdoors. They know them from bow to stern, and have been trained to teach you how to become a master of your own boat.
“It was very exciting to be around such a culture of people and find myself on the open waters of the wild pacific coast with such an inviting and welcoming group, in these amazing high-performance kayaks. Never in my wildest dreams would those few basic skills that we learned on the first day, would progress to where we went today.”
— Chelsea Josue
“That was really fun. He just broke it down… It’s funny when you have someone take the time to go through things that might be natural. He broke down the surf process into little bitty pieces that made me way more comfortable. I would have never just dove in and done that on my own.”
— Natalie Kelly
