Introduction to white water kayaking
This four-day introductory course starts right at the very beginning, so no prior experience is required. We’ll teach you about your gear and equipment, rescues, safe technique, fundamental skills and river-reading ability. We see rolling as an integral part of becoming an independent kayaker. Daily pool sessions allow you to develop your rolling technique. Lots of underwater time and a clever progression builds your skills and confidence. Minimal drive-time to the pool and rivers means more kayaking for you, return to the lodge between sessions to eat, warm up (and nap if you need!) and enjoy analysing your skills through video feedback with your feet up in the lounge.
Your instructor will customise information on the go, making sure you get exactly what you need. If you have never paddled before, have limited experience, are a beginner seeking help or have been taught by your friends, then this course is for you.
