Sundance Kayak School | Merlin, OR


For 40 years, Sundance Kayak School has been a center of learning and personal growth on the Rogue River in Oregon. Every kayaker has a progression, be they a beginner on their first day in a whitewater kayak or an intermediate paddler who wants to have more fun playing and catching eddies. Even for advanced paddlers looking to polish their technique and perfect the boof, or an instructor who is learning to teach advanced paddling technique, there is always a next step in their progression – something new to learn and explore. Come paddle the Rogue River and see for yourself!

Our philosophy extends beyond just an attitude, or a viewpoint.
