Our 1.5 Hour Kayak Taster sessions are designed as an entry point into the world of Paddlesports. In this 1.5 hour coaching session we will cover some basic skills which will ensure that you're safe and enjoy your time on the water. The main aim of these sessions is to get people into kayaks and enjoying themselves, plus we like to add in the basic skills of paddling forwards, backwards, turning, and going sideways.
Our 1.5 hour taster sessions are designed for beginners to paddlesports. These sessions can be used to teach new skills, go for a paddle or just play some boat based games.
As we don't follow a specific schedule or syllabus these sessions can be tailored for your personal needs. Our coaches can change these tasters to be exactly what you want - fancy a bit of a short tour? Playing games? Focusing on skills? We will ensure you get what you want from the session.
These sessions are also great for birthday parties (for kids or bigger kids), or for families who want to do a fun activity together - please contact us if you want to arrange it as a special group booking as we have a range of other offers and opportunities we can add in (lunch being one of them).
Skills normally covered include:
- Getting in and out
- Adjusting outfitting to enhance comfort and performance
- Posture and connectivity
- Forward paddling
- Turning both statically and on the move
- Going backwards
- Moving sideways
- What to do if you capsize
