Whether you've done a little (or a lot) or paddling before, or whether you've never tried it at all but are willing to get stuck in, this is just the course to get you started.
You will learn a lot, do a lot of kayaking and if you are not superhuman your muscles will be aching for most of the following week, but take it from us - those aching limbs bring back plenty of memories to cheer you up when the weekend's over and you're back in the office!
The main aim of the two day course is to get you comfortable paddling a boat on white water whilst gaining a huge amount of experience. Your highly qualified instructors will increase your ability and skill level whilst maintaining a suitable pace for all involved. Throughout the two days we will be working on getting you to grips with the techniques of White water paddling, looking at edge control, balance, power application, strokes, river and water reading, rescues and lots more.
This is a two day experience - expect to spend around 7 hours on the water each day
