Our white water kayaking introduction course is for kayakers who wish to try their skills on white-water, or for novice white-water paddlers who are looking to build confidence and control by improving and refining their technique. We aim is to coach you in white-water skills and techniques like breaking-in and out of the current, ferry gliding across the current and surfing on standing waves and small stoppers. River reading, rescue and safety on white-water are all an integral part of the coaching.

There is a range of rivers to choose from. The location for each day will depend on the weather conditions, the level of the rivers & previous experience of the group. We have accessible, local rivers from Grade 1/2 to Grade 4/5 – all within a 1 ½ hour drive at the maximum.
