The dramatic Ligurian coast of Italy is our base for Sea Kayak coaching. Based in the small Surf town of Levanto, right next door to the Cinque Terre, we explore the rocky coastline, develop personal and rescue skills and tour the famous regions of the Costa Liguria, and dependent on weather conditions including the Portofino peninsular and the Cinque Terre. Depending on what the conditions bring us there will opportunity for rock hopping, paddling in swell and developing surfing skills.
The advanced week is aimed at paddlers with experience on the sea that are looking for technical development and getting out in more challenging conditions. With the Ligurian coastline as our playground we have plenty of opportunities for rock hopping, surf and world class journeying to push limits and focus on higher level skills development. Of course we are as always limited by what nature throws at us, but with our small group sizes we can make the most out of conditions, which range from quite flat to 3m Swells and beyond.
