ESKA beginner workshop and US East Fund Raiser at CCPRC Kayak Symposium
The ESKA and the US East Team participated in the Charleston County Parks and Rec Kayak Symposium a few weekends ago. For the second year in a row ESKA Vice President Ross Fulcher, with his wife Roseanne, and member Russ Buskirk taught a beginner surf kayaking workshop at the event. With over 25 people attending the off-water class, and 12 participating in the on-water class, the workshop was a success. We hope that exposing beginners to the sport of surf kayaking will help them develop a love and appreciation for it.

The US East team also held a fund raiser raffle with prizes donated by Salt Marsh Kayak Company and a rec boat donated by Bass Pro Shops. We thank these sponsors for their support.
All monies will be used to help get the team to the World Championships this fall.
