CHATFIELD STATE PARK, Colo. (CBS4)– The summer kayaking season is quickly approaching and soon kayakers will be making their way around Colorado waterways.

CBS4’s Justin McHeffey took to the water at Chatfield State Park on Wednesday morning to try out some traditional kayaking moves. The water was pretty cold but kayakers tend to wear wetsuits in the water, which help keep them warm.

Watch Justin’s report and demonstration of some techniques below:

McHeffey tried out some interesting techniques like the wet exit, bow rescue and rolls in the introductory kayaking class with Renaissance Adventure Guides at the Chatfield Reservoir.

The guides offer beginner to advanced kayaking techniques at different waterways in Colorado.
