Designed around our all-new cutting edge 5 Elements of Whitewater Kayaking model, this course is designed to be give each participant an all-around whitewater kayaking skill development experience to springboard their knowledge, capability and performance level on the river.  

On each day of the course you'll head out to a prime white water kayaking location under the guidance of Paddle365 professional coaches.

 

Every day on the river will be given a broad theme, in-line with the 5 Key Elements: 
- Reading Whitewater

- Paddler Momentum

- Boat Control

- Safety and Rescue
- Mindset

 

Which level should I go for?

This course will be delivered at two levels: Moderate and Advanced Whitewater. 

The Moderate level course will be based on whitewater grade 2-3 and is recommended for paddlers who are in the early stages of their whitewater progress. To get the most out of this course, a paddler should be generally comfortable on most grade 2 whitewater, and willing to consider taking on grade 3 rapids on most days. Participants do not need to be able to roll, though this would be helpful. 

The Advanced level course will be based on whitewater grade 3 with opportunities to paddle up to grade 4 and beyond, and is recommended for paddlers with a few years experience. To get the most out of this course, a paddler should generally be comfortable on grade 3 rapids, and willing to consider taking on grade 4 rapids on most days. Participants should have at least a semi-reliable moving water roll.

The progressive nature of the course ticked all the boxes I was looking for with combinations of new lines, challenges and good old fashioned fun all delivered by great coaching. By the end of the week I had a clear understanding of a running theme to take away and work on. Now to get on it and apply with my new boat.     Emma Foxley - 5* 

It was an awesome experience and one I would recommend to others who are stuck in their paddling progression and want to progress further. Jamie is a patient and detailed instructor and it is easy to see that he is extremely passionate about the sport.  Morten Chen - 5*
