Coaching days contents
We will be working on the following during the sea kayak coaching days.
Forward paddling is the most used stroke but probably the least practiced. Most of us get our kayaking moving forward in a relatively straight line and then move onto making fancy turns and tricks.
During our sea kayak coaching days we will have forward paddling work shops looking at how you can improve and change this most fundamental of strokes depending on conditions and equipment.
Of course we’re not going to forget the fancy stuff, we will work on boat handling in rocks, sea caves and rough water.
We will look at self and peer rescues in a wide variety of environments.
If you have a roll and want to improve or want to learn how to roll your kayak the we will have something for you.
We will look at the roll in detail and look at rolling in different environments and conditions.
