Flip Tests!!!

To ensure the safety of our kayakers, all participants of kayak trips must pass a flip test. A flip test is when kayakers intentionally flip their kayak over, exit their kayak into the water, and climb back into the kayak.

Flip tests happen just off of Orkila's beach and are supervised by our trained staff. Not only are flip tests individually important for physical safety, but they also support emotional safety via the encouragement of peers and instructors. A flip test is an integral, yet fun, part of preparing to go on trip.
