NW Tasmania's wonderland of whitewater provided perfect venues for the weekend of coaching in river paddling -"Up a Creek with a Paddle".
30 paddlers took advantage of the opportunity to learn advanced whitewater paddling skills from some of the very best extreme river paddlers. Small groups received instruction during trips on the Fisher, Lea and Leven Rivers. The Saturday night DVD session provided further incentive to develop skills to enjoy river paddling, extreme racing events and to stay safer on rivers.
With several parents participating in the weekend with their children, the beauty of whitewater paddling as an activity that can be a shared family experience was highlighted.
Quality instruction and excellent venues assisted the participants in transforming themselves into smoother, more stylish and safer paddlers over the weekend.
