Discovery Weekend Camp + Kayak Package

TRAK not only builds a uniquely seaworthy skin on frame kayak, but also takes a stand for paddling skills development for our entire community. By providing accessible skills development programs at every level, we can help our community become more competent and confident on the water.

There is simply no better way to get started with TRAK. Receive your new kayak and then join us at a camp to learn all about building, customizing, and then paddling your new TRAK! These camps are beginner friendly and take a focus on setting you up for success - you’ll go from 0 to kayaking in 3 days!

      “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.”

      “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.”
