Water, the most incredible substance on earth covers over 70% of the planet’s surface. And because of ‘surface tension,’ it has the ability to produce waves that circle the entire globe, and rise up to hundreds of feet tall. It also is in one continuous ocean totally interconnected, so moves with the gravitational pull of the moon. All of this happens every day and has an impact on you in a kayak or SUP. So, for anyone playing in the ocean, this is core knowledge for your continued enjoyment & safety.

This course is one module in the Ocean Safety Certificate Course for sea kayaking or SUP. Points are awarded for completion that go towards the Sea kayak or SUP Competency certificate.

Course materials include downloadable PDFs and videos.
