Wayne Horodowich on Practicing Good Judgement

February 13 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Practicing Good Judgment

“Good judgment is learned from experience and experience is learned from bad judgment.”

After an outdoor tragedy, you often hear he or she should have done this or should have done that.

If you don’t want to reinvent the wheel, then come to this lecture to learn from the mistakes of others. We will review what constitutes good judgment, the decision making process and review some scenarios and situations that have caused problems for outdoor enthusiasts in the past with the hope of avoiding the same fate. You will have a chance to see what you would do and how you would handle different problems that have challenged your fellow adventurers. The goal is to give you the tools to make quality decisions so you can have many more adventures in your lifetime.

Wayne Horodowich is an experienced paddler, educator and adventurer. He directed “Adventure Programs” at the UC Santa Barbara for twenty-five years and was their head kayak instructor. Wayne has filmed and produced the popular USK “In Depth” Instructional video series specifically for sea kayaking and authored the book “Practicing Good Judgment – Adventurer’s Guide to Making Critical Decisions.” He is still very active in teaching instructor development clinics around North America and was a former captain of the U.S. Surf Kayak Team. He is the founder of the University of Sea Kayaking, an organization for the promotion of sea kayaking education, which hosts an incredible web site (www.useakayak.org) providing an educational resource to sea kayakers.
