There’s something exhilarating about being out on the water, gliding through currents, and feeling the gentle splash of waves against your kayak. As someone passionate about kayaking, finding the right gear and guidance is essential. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Kayak Instruction Inc., my local Jackson Kayak dealer, and it was an experience worth sharing.

Situated in Rowlett, Texas, Kayak Instruction Inc. isn’t just your typical kayak store. It’s a haven for enthusiasts of all levels, thanks to its founder, Dave Holl, whose vision to bring top-tier kayak instruction to our region became a reality in the summer of 2000. With a mission focused on safety, enjoyment, and skill acquisition, Kayak Instruction Inc. strives to make kayaking accessible to everyone.

Upon stepping into the store, I was greeted by a vibrant display of kayaks from Jackson Kayak. The variety was impressive, catering to different styles and preferences. What struck me was how this diverse fleet allows students participating in their classes to test and experience various kayak types. This hands-on approach helps in identifying the right fit, ensuring that each paddler finds a kayak that resonates with their style and needs. However, what truly sets Kayak Instruction Inc. apart is its commitment to excellent instruction. In a sport gaining popularity, the need for knowledgeable instructors becomes paramount. Here, the emphasis on up-to-date, technically accurate, and safe instructional skills is evident. Their involvement with nationally recognized paddle sports training organizations ensures that instructors stay at the forefront of the sport’s best practices, enabling students to develop skills in a safe and informed environment.

Moreover, the instructors at Kayak Instruction Inc. understand that learning should be enjoyable. They’re certified in promoting fun, which was evident during my visit. Not only did I pick up my new Coosa FD kayak—a gem that promises incredible adventures—but the excitement and enthusiasm Dave and his team exuded about the upcoming summer plans were infectious.

I left eager to dive into the water with my new gear, anticipating the fun-filled experiences ahead.
I’d highly recommend anyone in the area to swing by Kayak Instruction Inc. in Rowlett. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler, Dave and his team will guide you with expertise and a contagious passion for kayaking. Trust me, they’ve got a ton of exciting stuff lined up for the season, promising unforgettable moments on the water.
All thanks to the fantastic experience at Kayak Instruction Inc. with Dave and his team!
