LEARN TO KAYAK
This easy, and quick 4 week starter course is designed for you to learn what you need to run rivers, surf, or take the next step to becoming an Olympic Superstar. Work towards competing for your school at the Victorian Schools Championships ( September 2015) and even the National Championships in Tasmania (January 2016).
This fun course will take you from amateur to intermediate and teach you all the skills you need to enjoy your time kayaking. The first lesson will involve capsize drills and self rescue, and then we will move on to water handling and learning the key strokes in the next lessons. The course will end with a river trip taking the next step into the realms of whitewater.
All gear is provided – you just need to bring togs, easy dry clothes ( no cotton) and a change of clothes. Footwear suitable for rafting or kayaking will be needed ( Sneakers do not fit in the boat), and lycra rashies or thermals are recommended depending on the weather.
