DETAILED INFO

AIMS

On this course we aim to share our passion for paddling as you take your first paddle strokes out on the water. We’ll help you with the foundations that set you up for a lifetime of aquatic adventures and hopefully help you decide which area of paddlesport appeals to you the most.

PRE-REQUISITES

No previous experience required.

IS IT FOR ME?

This course is aimed at anybody who is keen to have paddling adventures.

It would help if you’re confident in and around water, but there’s no need to have done any paddling before. For most people, falling in is part of learning, so come prepared to get wet.

If you’d like the opportunity to try out a range of kayaks, canoes, sit on tops or stand up paddleboards and to develop your confidence and skills out on the water, then this is the course for you.

CONTENT

If you’re new to paddling, this two day course is a chance to try lots of different craft and see what suits you.

On day first day we’ll set up a range of kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards, then head out to a local loch to try them out.

The second day is very much up to you. We can use your chosen craft to explore sheltered lochs, gentle Highland rivers or even paddle out onto the sea if the weather permits.
