Finally we are starting to get our regular fall rains on the Mendocino Coast. We love the rain. It is beautiful and renews our forests and watersheds.
For those that are planning to travel to the Mendocino Coast this fall
or winter, don't let a rainy weather forecast deter you. Pack your rain
jacket and boots and enjoy one of the weather wonders that makes our
area so beautiful. Also know that even though a forecast might call for
several days in a row of rain or showers - it is very typical for the
sun to emerge during this time producing rainbows, dramatic skies,
and wild mushrooms.
Kayaking in the rain is quite magical. We provide our guests with waterproof splashwear and use decked sea kayaks that make kayaking in the rain comfortable and really fun. The wildlife doesn't seem to mind the rain.
We of course get really excited about rain because it makes the Mendocino County Rivers flow which means WHITEWATER!!! For those that want to learn to whitewater kayak, improve their skills, or run the Mendocino County Rivers with us, we have a full line-up of whitewater classes planned. LFK's Whitewater I class will get you started with the basics. LFK's Whitewater II puts your basic kayaking skills to work to catch eddies, ferry across channels, roll in current, and help friends in need.
After you have the basic skills of Whitewater I and II under your skirt, take advantage of the 3 day weekend in January and perfect your river running skills in our Precision River Running Class.
Private lessons or custom group lessons are available as well. Call or email us to schedule and then
Let's do our rain dance and go to the river!!!
