Patagonia Kayak School:
Kayak School Equipment

At Patagonia South Kayak School we take great care in selecting the right equipment for our beginning kayak students. Because our Kayak Clinics are hosted in this remote region of Patagonia Chile we regularly invest in the best and most modern kayaking equipment available. Our kayak school purchases new kayak gear every year. Below is a list of some of the gear we use, feature, and endorse.


Werner Paddles produce high performance blades that are carefully hand crafted using a pressure molding process of high quality fiberglass or carbon weave materials and epoxy resin. They have developed proprietary new processes using high quality carbon fiber or fiberglass and resin epoxy, resulting in the strongest shaft to weight ratio for the varying demands of whitewater and touring. Werner paddles excel in strength and are rightfully known as "bomber"!


Jackson Kayaks have quickly become known for their light weight, comfort, dryness and durability. Jackson Kayaks went out of their way to focus on a simple outfitting plan and ergonomic fit that is friendly to most lower-body types to let you get in more hours on the water with less discomfort than ever before.

Liquid Logic Kayaks
is committed to making truly innovative kayaks that continuously raise the standards of quality, performance, and safety through the simplicity and purity that draws us to paddle in the first place.

Dagger Kayaks started the revolution in boat designs in the 1990’s and is continuing with this heritage today. Their boats have a wide range from classic river runners to cutting edge play boats.

Wavesport Kayaks have developed numerous designs and has a popular all-around river runner, as well as several models of cutting-edge play boats. Their interior outfitting allows for high comforts and increases your time on the river.


Mountain Surf
manufactures high performance sprayskirts for whitewater, and touring kayaks and decked canoes. They provide great fitting skirts and they tailor skirt sizes to individual kayaks. They offer Bombproof and Easy On fits.

Snap Dragon produces exceptional sprayskirts for whitewater kayaks, with a variety of size options. There skirts provide a tight seal that will withstand the toughest of whitewater situations, keeping you safely in your boat.

Also offered at the Patagonia South Kayak School: Beginning Kayak Instruction, Intermediate Paddling Instruction, Advanced Paddling School Courses. How to Roll a Kayak clinics and private kayak instruction.
