A fun introduction to surfing kayaks. For this course we can make use of whatever boat best suits your needs whether that be our fleet of Fatyak "Kaafu" Sit on Top kayaks, our Mega Performance Surf kayaks (we have a few different sizes of these), or even a sea kayak!
This will be a whole day course spending the morning working on fundamental skills which we can put into practice in the afternoon!
In the morning we will aim to cover:
- Boat control
- Using stern rudders
In the afternoon we will aim to cover:
- Basic paddling out techniques
- Surf etiquette
- How to catch a wave
- How to control your boat on a wave
- How to exit the wave
- Rescues in the surf zone
To get the most out of this course you'll need to be able to paddle a kayak in a straight line, and have control over steering it.
Being able to roll is not essential!
We aim to run these sessions on our local beaches (Bracklesham Bay area), due to the slight unpredictability of surf conditions in this area we may need to cancel/postpone these sessions last minute (you can't surf if there are no waves!).
Dates for 2019:
- 17 April
- 24 October
