Kayaking on Storrs Pond

Kayaking on Storrs Pond

It’s a glorious summer day, the sun is shining, the sky is blue and it’s the weekend.  You want to get out and have some fun.  It’s the perfect type of day to be outside, commune with nature, paddle a kayak around a lake – but you don’t know how.  You are in luck because LL Bean’s Kayak Discovery Series allows you to walk into the West Lebanon, NH store and sign-up for an hour-and-a-half kayak instruction for $20 on Storrs Pond in Hanover, NH.  LL Bean will supply the kayak, the paddle, the PFD, and take care of all your personal valuables.  Class size ranges from 1 to 14 people and there are typically two instructors per class.  The class consists of 20 – 30 minutes of dry land instruction, including determining who goes into which boat, what paddle size is needed, securing PFDs (personal flotation device), as well as instruction on how to hold the paddle and paddling techniques.  Students will then hit the water in their kayaks for an hour of paddling around on Storrs Pond.  LL Bean’s Discovery Series runs through Saturdays from May 26 to September 22 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and on Sundays from July 1 through August 26 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  What do you have to lose?  Be prepared to get a little wet.
