This introductory weekend intends to introduce you to the sport, improve your confidence on the water and develop your paddling skills so that you leave with a firm grounding in the essential techniques of sea kayak paddling.
Amongst other things, we will look at efficient forward paddling, different methods for getting in and out of the boat, edging and turning strokes. The two day course also gives us the time to focus on your individual needs and whether you join the course with more experience, you'll still get lots out of the course and a solid grounding in the techniques whatever your level.
We will spend the majority of the first day perfecting your paddling techniques and the second day focuses on planning, safety on the lake and dealing with problems. By the end of the day, you'll feel confident capsizing, getting out of the boat, helping others get in and getting in on your own.
Our aim is to make you as self-sufficient as possible and give you a solid grounding in the sport to enable you to go out kayaking confidently under your own steam. We also encourage you to create a personal development plan so that you can continue to practice the techniques that you have been taught on the course.
