 “In the recent past I have had tidal current training with Matt DeLong. My experience with Matt (has) been excellent. Matt, thru a well thought out approach of each day, helped me take the next step and assisted me in comfortably engaging in new challenges. Having experienced Matt’s dedication to helping ever(y) paddler achieve more control and comfort in one’s own paddling skills I can do nothing other than “Very highly recommend” Matt’s coaching and the various moving water programs Candlebox Kayaking offers. Thank you Matt.” - Frank, TripAdvisor Course Duration: 1 day (approx 5hrs) Meet at: Glenwood Provincial Park at 11am
