Eb's offers introductory kayak clinics in the spring through Jeff Roe, a 16 year kayaking veteran and certified Paddle Canada instructor. These clinics cover kayak basics, safety skills (wet exits and rescues) and paddle strokes. Suitable for absolute beginners or those with some paddling experience who want to feel more confident on the water, the clinics are 4 hours (3 hours on the water). Kayaks are provided.
Courses take place in April and May at Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre. Price is $100, payable by cash or cheque at the pool.
If you are interested in a private lesson or would like more information please call the store (306-652-0385) or contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-361-6333.
We are happy to partner with Outdoor Experience to offer canoe lessons and certification. Run by Paddle Canada certified instructors Kim Archibald, Howard Sproat and Bill Morris, Outdoor Experience has been teaching and certifying new and experienced paddlers for decades.

Cross Country Ski Lessons
Eb's has a number of experienced nordic ski instructors available to teach private lessons during the snow season. They teach skate or classic, no age limit. Cost is $60/hr. If you sign up as a couple or a group it is $60 for the first person and $20 per each additional person (maximum 6). Payment can be made at the lesson (cash or cheque), in person at the store, or over the phone with a credit card.
If you need to rent equipment please see our rentals page for rates, or contact the store. Rentals include skis, boots and poles - everything you need for the lesson. You can come in ahead of time to get sized or you can do this over the phone if necessary (we need your height, weight and shoe size). If you pay ahead of time we can guarantee we have your sizes available for your lesson date.
If interested, please contact the store. An instructor will get back to you to set up a time and location that works best for all.
