In this course, we will look at adapting your existing whitewater kayaking skills to use on advanced whitewater, which is often characterised by having steeper terrain and longer rapids. We'll work hard so you can gain the confidence and skill to style your lines consistently on harder, longer rapids.
Throughout this course we'll work with you to develop your abilities in the 5 key elements of whitewater kayaking:
- Boat Control
- Reading Whitewater
- Controlling momentum
- River Safety

Each day we'll meet at a location central to our river options for the course. We'll have a quick briefing over a coffee and then head out for a river adventure. On the water we'll balance technical coaching with adventure mentoring to help you gain experience on the river in a holistic way.
Who's this course for?
The grade 3 -4 kayaker who wants to up their game. Stop relying on support strokes, use the river and style their lines. You don't have to be all over it, that's why we're here, but to make the most of this course you should have a reliable roll and be paddling class 3 well with a degree of consistency, and be keen to paddle and learn on grade 4.
