Great experience with friendly knowledgeable people. I wanted to feel confident learning to paddleboard in a small group on a private calm lake and that is exactly what I achieved.

Tyler was an amazing instructor....patient with us novices, explaining things/demonstrating how things are done, clearly, and keeping it all fun, at the same time. He provided lots of one-on-one help, tailored to the students' needs, which I appreciated.

About Valley Mill Kayak School

Since 1956, Valley Mill Kayak School has trained countless kayakers, including the first kayaking recipients of Olympic medals, on the deep waters of the Potomac River. A former Olympian and four-time freestyle-kayaking world champion, Eric Jackson personally designs the school's lesson plans around modern whitewater-paddling techniques. Eric trains each of the school's American Canoe Association–certified instructors, who, in turn, dispense their knowledge to beginners and proficient paddlers alike.

Through a wealth of small classes, private lessons, and occasional clinics taught by Eric himself, pupils discover such skills as paddling and basic strokes, or attempting to work your kayak into rhythmic-gymnastics routines.
