If you have ever wanted to give white water kayaking a try or have had a taster before and would like to develop your skills, this is the course for you. With loads of great introductory white water rivers on our doorstep, we’ll start off with the basics and progress onto as many challenges as you want!
This two-day course starts with skills development on the first day before journeying on the second day. It is a fun, exhilarating, challenging course which sets you up with the skills to choose your own path down the river and manoeuvre your boat effectively on rapids.
We’re passionate about helping develop white water paddlers, and we guarantee that everything we teach you will still work no matter how hard you paddle in the future.
We will look at; how to set up and adjust your boat, kayak control techniques from generating cross and down river speed to crossing eddylines, surfing waves and running rapids, and by the end of the course you'll be choosing you own route down the river.
Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who has also signed up for the course.
Full equipment is provided, including the latest white water kayaks from Pyranha and Dagger, paddles, buoyancy aids, helmets, spray decks and dry suits. Just bring some old trainers and thermals.
