1 Day

This 1 day course is ideal for those who have some experience of paddling Sit on Top Kayaks, but who would like a solid introduction to the skills required to safely and efficiently paddle a SOT kayak in rough water, surf and tidal races.

This course will spend time looking at equipment, different types of boat and the paddle skills needed to get the most out of your Sit on Top Kayak in rough water.

You will look at advanced rescues, both on flat water but also in rougher water, depending on your objectives. You will spend a great deal of time in rough water learning advanced skills that will enable you to confidently and competently venture into more advanced and remote locations.

You will spend your time on the water doing whatever the conditions permit; it may be surfing, rock hopping or off around to the Needles.

Whatever you do it will be an adventure in a stunning location, with great equipment and extremily competent, and highly qualified coaches who are there to ensure that you are both safe and having fun.

You can choose to use our top of the range Sit-on-Top Kayaks or you can bring your own if it is suitable.

Your coach will structure your course so as you get the most possible during your time on the water. You’ll be enjoying your time out on the water in an awesome environment traveling to places only accessible by kayak or having fun in the surf.
