This 2 hour workshop based in Auckland takes you from whatever level you are at (beginner-intermediate) and advances toward mastery of moving waters before embarking on a river trip with more serious consequences.

Let SNM introduce you to the moving water environment if you have never paddled on swift moving water before. You will advance flatwater kayaking skills onto moving waters. Your SNM kayak coach will introduce new concepts enabling you to competently manage tidal streams, currents and moving waters.

We will practice the ferry glide, eddyline features and paddle strokes.

Double kayaks welcome too!
