Kayaking Foundation and Fundamentals Whitewater

Rescue team in action

Kayaking Foundation and Fundamentals – February 25-26

Saturday 25 February Whitewater Skills – This course is suitable for those new to paddling and who want to develop their whitewater paddling skills on Grade 2-3 water. It will look at different paddle strokes, river running, suitable craft, tows and rope work.

Sunday 26 February Rescue 1 – Utilising the skills and knowledge from the previous day you will paddle on moving water (kayaks, packrafts, sit-on-tops) and build on those as well as gain knowledge on the basics of rescuing self and others.  Being able to fall out of your boat is the only prerequisite! We’ll use the easier rapids above and below the main rapid so it’s not too intimidating. This is also good prep before attending a Level 2 Rescue course.
