Women’s Kayak Programs


Zoo Town Surfers has provided the most progressive kayak instruction in Missoula, Montana for years and now we’re going to make it better, especially for the ladies.  ZTS offers women’s kayak programs that focus on building confidence and skill.  Let our female instructors show you how the women rock it here in Montana.  The Missoula area has some of the best instructional whitewater in the world.   Like all of our clinics and classes, the ladies of ZTS create a friendly, safe, fun, and supportive atmosphere for learning whitewater kayaking.  Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced paddler looking to push the limit, our ACA certified instructors have you covered.


“Girls on the Gorge” has been a women’s whitewater kayaking clinic tradition for years. Thanks to a local female paddler, this annual event is one of the best female clinics around. The 3 day event takes place at the Zoo Town Surfers headquarters, Crystal Springs, on the Alberton Gorge. The clinic is open to all ability levels. The goal for Girls on the Gorge is to provide a unique and inspiring learning environment that focuses on whitewater kayaking technique, confidence building, making new friends, and of course having fun on the river! Warm-up drills, strokes, rolling, edging, bracing, eddies, ferries, reading water, intro to playboating and edge control are just some of the techniques you will learn.
