Learn from Nigel Foster. Nigel travels widely to teach and to give talks and presentations. Contact Nigel if you would like him to address your group or organization, or instruct classes. Nigel is always open to new project opportunities, for example writing, education or design.

As soon as Covid19 is suitably quiet.

In 2021 Nigel will offer Seattle area individual kayak coaching, and instruction for small groups only.
If you would like to finesse your personal skills or learn some new skills to push your paddling up a step, then this could be the time to do it!
