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.


Lisa Marie, Pilates Instructor and Wellness coach, and Devon Barker-Hicks, ACA certified kayak instructor, are teaming up with Zoo Town Surfers to offer a fun filled clinic paddling in Montana. By combining the beauty of the river and the movement of Pilates this clinic will offer not just an adventure but an awareness of how the river moves similarly to our movements. Lisa Marie has been teaching Pilates for over 10 years and also offers a stretch/exercise repertoire called Pilates for Paddlers. Devon will incorporate the Pilates movements into daily paddling. There will also be time to fine tune your paddling and or work on your paddling goals. Each morning will begin with a Pilates session before we go play on the water. Our time on the water will be a great opportunity to learn all the paddling strokes, learn to roll your kayak or boom proof your roll, work on your specific goals, and strengthening your paddling.
