Testimonials
   

This development award will give you the foundation skills that will make you a better all round paddler. Develop the basics correctly at the start and your future progression will be smoother and swifter. With simple explanations of techniques we can improve your paddling in the full range of craft.

 

We run this course over two days to allow you to improve at the pace you need. Use it as two days of training or purely as an assessment. We can also run a one day assessment if you prefer.

 

 

Over the two days we will cover precise flat water manoeuvring; dealing with the wind on open water and how to move the canoe around in simple white water. The perfect continuation from 2 Star .

Over the two days of this course we will look at all aspects of the 3 Star sea kayak syllabus. We can run this course as a bespoke assessment for small groups in addition to our scheduled dates.

 

This course will improve your white water paddling and introduce the leadership strategies to set you on the path to being a 4 Star white water leader.  At the end you will have a better understanding of white water paddling techniques and tactics and have a clear picture of your action plan for assessment.

 

During this two day assessment you will get the opportunity to lead a real group in a variety of environments. We will also look at personal skill and rescues in moderate white water. We feel that using real students helps put people at ease. No tricks or pretend scenarios, just lead the group.
