What part of Greenland paddling are|

you most interested in? Rolling? Gear, paddle, and boat making? Stroke,paddling, and harpooning? Instructors tend to have strengths and weaknesses in different areas. Someone who would be outstanding in teaching rolls might not want to help you with building your boat and vice versa. Are you trying to focus on any one area? Bill
More into Rolls and general paddling....|

There is a Tahe kayak dealer in Miami. It is called Paddlehouse. Wayne,who is one of the owners is an acomplished Greenland paddler. He is a nice man that may be able to help you out. He has trained with Cheri Perry recently. Hope this helps......Dave

Having spent time already building boats and paddles, and rolling at a few training camps, I would jump at any chance to spend time with Greg Stamer. JMO Bill

is as important to you as rolling one, then Greg Stamer would be a great instructor. You won't find a better instructor.
