Intermediate to Advanced Kayaking - Making the Moves & Stepping It Up to Grade 3




This 3-day course focuses on improving paddling through stroke efficiency and stroke sequencing while using river features to the paddlers’ advantage. We will graduate your learning by starting on flat water before applying these complex moves on Grade 2 – 3 water.

We will have a strong focus on river scouting to choose preferred lines (rather than following someone down the river). Your instructor will create challenges for you to practice these complex and precision moves, for example setting a slalom course or using natural river features to set specific river lines.

A variety of feedback methods will be used, including video analysis where you can deep dive into your technique and see your improvement and where you need to focus on next.

This course is for anyone comfortable paddling Grade 2 rivers and ready to step up to Grade 3.  A slicy tailed boat would be the ideal but any river boat is fine.

This course is usually run on Grade 2 – 3 rivers such as the Mersey or similar.
