If you’re just getting into white water kayaking and you want to develop the solid foundations skills that set you up for a lifetime of white water adventures, this is the course for you.
At the start of the course we’ll help you choose boats and equipment. Then we’ll head down to a local loch, or gently moving river to start learning how to control the boat. Over the week we’ll paddle a range of rivers, increasing the challenge as your control and confidence builds. We’ve got a wide range of local rivers choose from, including the Spey, Tay, Ness and Findhorn.
We’ll spend time coaching and developing your personal paddling. As you improve, you’ll start to “read the water”, anticipating what’s going to happen to your boat instead of reacting to it. We’ll also look at how to paddle safely as a group.
Glenmore Lodge has a purpose made kayak rolling pool, which will be available during the week. It’s a great place to develop your water confidence and rescue skills.
