Get the fundamentals correct and build good habits.
If you’ve never kayaked before, learning everything you need to pass your certificate can be a big challenge. That’s why we created this kayak coaching and training course. Get a head-start on your skills before you get on the rivers, so you have the confidence to perform at your best.
Learn at your pace, without the pressure.
The purpose of this Kayak Coaching and Training course is to help you gain confidence with kayaking, and provide some frameworks to progress with. There is no pressure of assessment, nor rush to prepare you for the river. Make your first paddling experience a positive one, and you’ll enjoy kayaking so much more.
Receive advice from an experienced instructor.
Kayaking is a very gear intensive sport, and it can get technical, fast. As a novice, it’s easy to make poor gear choices based on online marketing, or shop assistant advice. As part of your Kayak Coaching and Training course, we will will break down all the essential gear in a simple and easy to follow way. We’ll provide advice specific to your needs, and you can even purchase gear from us if you wish.
